RABEA: primary school curriculum together with content civics, health, and conflict-sensitive messages
Learning Village: Primary curricula
The SSIRI project, implemented from 2006-2011, supports primary schools by providing audio for teachers and students and printed teacher's guides. To support formal education in primary schools, it has produced 480 Learning Village audio lessons that are distributed via radio and by digital audio player. It supports non-formal education via the Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) and serves out-of-school youth with 180 RABEA (Radio-Based Education for All) audio programs offering the primary school curriculum together with civics, health, and English-language content. It also supports informal learners via 60 RABEA audio programs that also provide civics, health, and conflict-sensitive messages.
Learning Village interactive audio instruction (IAI) series is a full-year, curriculum-based program for primary grades 1-4 that covers all primary subjects (for use in formal schools or in community schools where no formal schools exist). RABEA accelerated English and math programming for youth teaches primary school subjects alongside lifeskills for out-of-school youth in levels 1-4 (uses conflict-sensitive messaging).
