Telp, a fast-growing startup committed to spearheading the EdTech sector in Bahrain, has rolled out a new product called Raed (Ra-ed, or pioneer in Arabic).

The new initiative is somewhat different from Telp’s existing products and services based around tutoring children of different age groups. Raed is a mobile app offering various fun and exciting online activities for supplementing the learning of children aged between 4-12.

Raed hosts one-hour live learning sessions every week where participants can partake in activities such as science experiments, English speaking, storytelling, and such. These sessions are highly interactive as each learning group consists of only about 6 to 8 children.

The content of each live session is carefully curated by Telp’s in-house educators. They focus on ensuring that the learning objectives are achieved in every session for maximum efficiency.

“The difference between Raed programs, and any other learning program, is that kids actually  want to attend. The sessions are fun and feel like a game and activity”, says Eman Yasser, a  mother, Engineer, and lead session planner at Raed.

“Two years of talking to parents and interacting with students has revealed to us deeper-rooted problems in the education system. Although major structural changes are necessary, the private sector plays a vital role in enhancing the education system and services offered,” says Telp co-founder and CEO Ameena Bucheeri

Ameena added, “With Raed, we envision a future where learning is enjoyable,  memorable, and highly engaging.”

Currently, the Raed team is busy expanding its pool of programs while simultaneously teaming up with relevant institutions to add more value to the platform.
