Kojo Roots

Kojo research projects around the Dehradun area

children having fun with Kojo coding

The Kojo roots project has been running since 2015 – in villages and communities around Dehradun, India. The basic goal of this project has been to get children (from grades 3+) going with coding, and with the learning of essential skills through coding, grounded in the foundation of learning with understanding. To enable this, computer labs have been set up in many of the participating schools (the ones that did not already have computers).

This project has also been (and continues to be) a proving ground for the value-add and benefits of Kojo, and has guided the direction of Kojo development.

Some of the participating schools have been:

  • Shivalik school, Herbertpur
  • Mother Dreams, Herbertpur
  • Ashworth school, Dehradun
  • Mother Miracle, Rishikesh
  • Himalayan English School, Ghansali
  • Timli Vidyapeeth, Shri Timli
  • Mondrian House
