Review for ELI Africa, New Haven, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ELI Africa engages with Mauritian students in a thoughtful manner, tailoring its projects to their needs. As a fellow, I have been designing projects for two schools, one a primary school that is preparing students for a standardized test called the CPE, and the other a vocational school for students who have already failed the CPE. Mauritian schools typically favor a highly regimented method of teaching that allows little room for student innovation and input, but ELI Africa attempts to combat this with experiential learning projects. For example, at the primary school Etoile de Mer, ELI Africa is helping the students begin a fruit and vegetable garden and write books about themselves.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have been in the schools for about two weeks, and students who seemed disinterested when ELI Africa first arrived have showed excitement when challenged by a more hands-on learning process.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
