Experiential Learning Initiative
Celebrating multiple intelligence and empowering children through hands-on learning.

We aim at bridging the achievement gap between children from low-income families and wealthier ones. Through our innovative educational programs such as Positive Psychology, ELI Code and Science programs, we create the right environment for students to find and nurture their talents and passions. Our programs are currently run in two education centers in Residence Kennedy and Bambous respectively.

Education the ELI way

At ELI, learning is not limited to static memorization and repetition exercises. Our concept of education and teaching can be termed as “experiential learning” which is essentially learning by doing. It is a process that provides the learner with access to knowledge, skills and practice through direct experience and through a continuous cycle of action and reflection. We do not believe in the singular concept of intelligence.

Our educational programs are grounded in the Multiple Intelligences theory developed by Dr. Howard Gardner, Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, in order to provide our students with a full-fledged education and equip them with life skills.

The story behind

The Experiential Learning Program started with a needs assessment survey which revealed an increasing achievement gap between children from low-income families and those from wealthier ones. It was also found that students with weaker verbal and logical intelligence were neglected by the system, no matter how intelligent they may be in other ways.
