Summary

TajRupt is pioneering access to civic education in Tajikistan through extracurricular activism - from gender equality to debates and journalism. Our project seeks to impact secondary school students in rural areas of northern Sughd region. We want to establish digital resource centers through which rural students can participate in the activities and classes taking place at our Extracurricular Resource Center (ERC) in urban Khujand area.

Challenge

Tajikistan's public education system retains the Soviet methodology of repressing critical thinking and extracurricular activities, leaving 485,000 students in the northern Sughd region deprived of crucial opportunities for civic engagement. This puts secondary school students at a disadvantage when seeking admission to universities both domestically and abroad. Students in rural areas are hit the hardest given the lack of resources and systemic underfunding of education in their areas.

Solution

By digitizing our civic education curriculum, we will empower rural students to engage with activities focused on improving their critical thinking in a virtual space, while also providing them with access to the internet. This will pioneer the first truly digital classroom eco-system for students in the Central Asian region at-large and enable rural students to engage in vital extracurriculars.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide 2500 rural students with access to a digital civic education curriculum, with prospects of impacting thousands more all across the country through a virtual platform.
