Kenan Institute Asia

Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime. Unfortunately, in order for the students of today to succeed in the world of tomorrow, they require far more than basic skills.

That is why Kenan is working in Thailand and Vietnam to deliver our 21st century education model to help students prepare for jobs that haven’t even been created yet. Our goal is to accelerate the changes taking place in education as the region moves from one of rote learning and memorization, to one using modern pedagogies and group, question-based learning.

By improving the curriculum used for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), developing teachers to effectively use modern pedagogies in the classroom to build badly needed 21st century work skills, and supplying classrooms with the equipment needed to teach students using hands-on activities, Kenan is ensuring that hundreds of thousands of students are not being left behind as the region undergoes its next stage of economic development.

Please see below to learn more about our work and the students and teachers we have empowered.
