At Kijana, we believe that our world needs problem-solvers and community craftsmen or craftspeople. We need future citizens who will forge a better world for us with a spirit of caring, sharing and exploring. Our junior secondary school students are learning chess. Chess teaches multiple critical thinking skills, including: problem-solving, abstract reasoning, calmness under pressure, patience, sportsmanship, creative thinking, pattern recognition, visualization, openings, and much more. Through our unique Care, Share and Explore program students are taking action to connect with their community to build a greener future. Collectively, students are planting and growing tree seedlings, exploring their environment and reflecting upon their place and relationship with the natural world.
