The Kabakoo Learning Experience

Own your learning, shape the future.

Local Ecosystems x Active Pedagogy x Tech & Data x People: The core elements of our learning experience are woven together through the seven habits of Kabakoo. Acquiring these seven habits ensures our learners develop a mindset of growth and lifelong learning.


Learn by making real things

At Kabakoo, collaborative project-based experiences rooted in the realities of learners are the cornerstone of the learning process.

Learners choose the projects they want to work on. This experiential and collaborative approach allows to make good use of everyone's passion and thus improves not only the project outcomes but also the individual learning objectives.

The socio-cultural anchoring of the collaborative projects leads the participants to regularly go outside their own walls. This enables the learners to deal with the different faultlines on the ground such as languages barriers and territorial segregation, and depending on the projects, to accumulate local indigenous knowledges gathered on the ground.

"I was fortunate to have the resources to attend university in my country but I have to admit it did not really help me as the courses there were really out of touch from my daily life. Once at Kabakoo, I learned in a couple of months how to create value and make a living while actively solving the problem of plastic waste around me."

“Everyday at Kabakoo, I learn something new. I have learned a lot from looking not only at technology but also at local traditions. I feel like we are really learning to realize our future and solve our problems together. We exchange our opinions, share our concerns and support each other.”

“Local and traditional knowledge are often pitched against modern and state-of-the-art technology. Marrying them requires a special appreciation for both the traditional and the modern. Kabakoo is built on such values that is why I appreciate being part of the communtity.”
