About The Product/Innovation
Meraki aims to create a community of parent leaders to improve access and quality of education. Their solution is a two-step process – Meraki Sprint and Meraki Relay. Meraki Sprint consists of in-person workshops and Do It Your (DIY) activities implemented at home. Content of workshops is based on principles developed at Center on Developing Child, Harvard University. At each workshop, parents learn contextualised ways to engage with their children to improve the child’s ability to develop language skills through meaningful interactions at home. After each workshop, parents are provided with simple DIY activities, relevant to the context of low income, under resourced homes.
