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. Through CLAP children will achieve essential learning goals that will help them transition back to school effectively. 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 closure. They have missed out on foundational skills and will enter formal school at a significant disadvantage
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 before schools reopen.
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
