Our area of work .
Kenan is leading the way in transforming STEM education both in Thailand and Vietnam. We seek to inspire students, develop skilled teachers, and support strong school leaders for the advancement of 21st century education.
Today, kids must think critically and dynamically apply science, technology, engineering and math (STEM education) to solve complex problems. Without developing key 21st century skills, Thai children are destined to sink in the fast-paced, Industry 4.0 era. The solution to overcoming these challenges is to inspire kids now to pursue the jobs of tomorrow. This involves giving students opportunities to develop smart skills and an innovative mindset.
Kenan is the leading non-profit provider of education programming in Thailand designed to inspire students, build skilled teachers and grow strong principals. Our learning modules and materials have been adapted from international best practices and matched to meet the local context and curriculum to ensure learning is fun and relevant to school and the real world. Our experts work across Thailand to provide poor students with exciting, hands-on learning activities that inspire them to pursue a 21st century education and dream big about their future.
