Imagine a form of education that helps you to transform your ideas, gifts, skills and knowledge from ‘what if, it can happen’ into ‘why not, let’s make it happen’ – that’s Prikkle Academy.
We open the doors of autonomy, creativity, trust, diversity and collaboration in education – learning and doing – for young people to flourish at their pace.
Welcome to Prikkle Academy…inspiring community builders.
We use open-source and personalized education to turn ideas and knowledge into action.
We encourage participants to collaborate through their learning, identify the social challenges within their community, freely choose their own tools and create solutions through virtual and peer-to-peer learning.
At Prikkle Academy, we envision an Africa where rural youths are community builders, valued by everybody and can play a critical role in national development.
We establish creative hubs with rural youths where people can collaborate and solve tangible community problems through their own learning, both peer to peer and virtual.
Through asset-based and design thinking training, we impart youths to uncover strengths, community asset and vision, then mobilize the local resources to solve social problems.
We have directly inspired 3000+ children and youths through alternative education to create innovative solutions to community problems using personal, relevant and anticipated learning.
