CHILD (Cultural Heritage and Interactive Learning Development) Centre
In November 2017, SAT-7 E&D and NGO Biladi partnered for the development of an alternative learning centre with the name C.H.I.L.D. (Cultural Heritage and Interactive Learning Development). C.H.I.L.D. is set-up in Kfaryachit, Lebanon, and offers non-formal education to more than 100 Syrian refugee children between the ages of 4 and 8, and their parents or primary caregivers.
The CHILD centre uses SAT-7 ACADEMY programs, such as My School, and other relevant social development programs produced by the channel. Furthermore, the centre provides evidence-based learning such as:
- Informal learning and life lessons
- Fun activities and creative playtime
- Support for parents and primary care-givers
- Emotional support
- Teacher trainings
At the centre, the programming department of SAT-7 ACADEMY, together with SAT-7’s Projects Management Team and Biladi, systematically and objectively assess the relevance of the programs and the performance of the children, parents and teachers. The assessments identify what is working and what is not working in the programs and projects as well as what challenges are emerging. This way, changes can be made to better suit the needs of SAT-7 ACADEMY’s viewers.
