What We Do
We are supporting the development of education systems in developing countries through the export of Kawaijuku Group's education assets.
The Company and Kawaijuku Group possess an abundance of educational content, expertise, and methods, and many of these educational assets have been developed and widely implemented in Japan. For instance, Kawaijuku Group's national standardized mock test has become widely disseminated across Japan as the de facto standard for test-taking content and know-how.
We would like to utilize these educational assets even more widely, both within Japan and abroad, and are promoting a project to expand Kawaijuku Group's educational services to developing countries.
By localizing Kawaijuku Group's educational resources and distributing them around the world, we can create a virtuous cycle of not only resolving educational issues and raising educational standards in all countries involved, but also contributing to their development, thereby generating even more added value.
With these lofty goals in mind, we hope to spread the effectiveness of Japan-style education throughout the world, beginning with our test development project in Uzbekistan.
With the adoption by JICA, one educational project has been completed in Uzbekistan and another is underway. (Please see the table below for further details.)
|Implementation period||August 16, 2019 to January 31, 2022【Completed】||August 20, 2021 to November 30, 2023【Ongoing】|
|Project Name||Project to Disseminate, Demonstrate, and Commercialize Learning Management Systems (LMS) to Improve the Capabilities of Rural School Teachers and Reduce Educational Disparities in Uzbekistan||Project to Disseminate, Demonstrate, and Commercialize the Introduction of Japanese-Style Student Aptitude Test Methods in Uzbekistan|
Record of main activities to introduce Japan-style student aptitude test methods
Some of the following activities are also posted on the Facebook page of our counterpart, Avloni Institute.
Director of Avloni and staff of International Department visited us from Uzbekistan.
Hapiral Test Solutions made an initial trip to discuss test result analysis and evaluation criteria together with our members, Avloni's director, and staff in charge.
Following the analysis of the results of the first test conducted by the project in November 2021, a teacher seminar was held mainly for teachers working in the schools where the tests were administered.
We participated in an international seminar organized by UNICEF together with Avloni to introduce the project.
A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between our local counterpart MoPE, Avloni, JICA Uzbekistan Office, and our company.
Our proposal to develop a Japan-style student aptitude test in Uzbekistan was adopted by JICA’s “SME and SDGs Business Support Program.”
We are currently promoting this project in cooperation with JICA. After this project plan is completed, we intend to develop projects that contribute to raising educational standards and promoting growth in Uzbekistan and many more countries, either as part of Official Development Assistance (ODA) or as individual projects of KEI Advance. We will actively promote various projects full of dreams and hopes, including proficiency tests, academic contests, curriculum and textbook development, attracting foreign students to (and from) Japan, and general educational advisory services.
