Info about the Learn It, Live It Camp


Many schools in Kyrgyzstan, especially those in villages and small towns, continue to use Soviet style teaching methods which consist of students listening to lectures, copying passages, reciting dictations, and translating texts. Lessons that expose children to art, other cultures, and music – subjects that inspire students to form their own opinions, ideas, and be creative and confident—often are not taught due to financial limitations or limited knowledge of their importance. Furthermore, a collective culture is evident in the classroom where even the brightest students try to blend in with their fellow classmates by sharing answers and avoiding “outshining” anyone.

A way for exceptional students to realize their potential is needed. “Live It, Learn It Camp” will give students in a town in Kyrgyzstan the opportunity to study subjects in a manner that is unconventional in terms of the classroom norms to which they are accustomed – while having fun! Through the course of one month and seven subjects, the camp will strengthen leadership and teambuilding skills, promote critical thinking, and give participants the encouragement and resources to be creative.

To implement such a camp, the community requests $2800 from the Partnership Program and will contribute 26.5% of the total cost of the month long project. Camp location and rent, staff, and transportation are some of the necessities that the community will provide to make this camp a success.
