“Nooks” are educational centers for self-determined learning, or – in short – “schools without teachers”. They enable the members of a local community to carry out their own learning projects based on individual interests and needs. We created our first Nook Hub in Gahanga, in Kicukiro district in 2019 where learning happens by exploring and creating projects of personal interest together in teams and with other members of the community.
Presently the young people are involved in projects that range from science, arts, music, agriculture, tailoring and designing, mechanics, entrepreneurship among other innovations. The end results is that these projects started by the young people could create self-employment and economic independence.
