Children Learning, Assisted by Parents
The Children Learning, Assisted by Parents (CLAP) project is an AI-enabled, WhatsApp based program for parents with children between the ages of 3-8. It brings together the most effective early learning activities that can be easily done at home by parents in less than 30 minutes a day. CLAP will help children practice the foundational skills that they will need to easily transition back to school. This is a free program in which parents can access over 100 activities in the language of their choice

Since early 2020, children from low income communities, between the ages of 3-6 have had no access to pre-primary education due to lockdown and school/Anganwadi closures and have missed out on foundational skills. While the permanence of return to school is uncertain, CLAP ensures consistency in learning environments for young children by empowering parents to take active ownership of their child's education at home
At KEF, we have learnt that parents, irrespective of their financial and academic background, want to and can take part in the learning of their child if they are empowered and supported with a program that keeps in mind the existing barriers of language, cost, time and mindset
The CLAP Project is an at-scale extension of this learning with a hope that many more parents from low-income communities get access, support and motivation to engage in the learning of their child to make their return to school a safe and joyful experience
How does CLAP work?
Parents register for CLAP by entering a few details
activities on their registered WhatsApp number regularly
They conduct the activity for their child using easily available materials at home
They answer a simple test question upon observing their child engage with the activity
At the end of the program, they receive a progress report and a certificate for their child

"Families of the youngest children have demonstrated their willingness and ability to support their children’s education, even once schools begin to open. It would be a terrible shame if this huge opportunity to bring parents on board as important actors in their children’s education is wasted"
