Kits4Kids University (Madagascar) takes on the strategic and leadership role in driving training and educational management consultancy efforts for the social service and educational sector. We offer a wide spectrum of services geared towards enhancing the capability of educational organisations in both public and private sectors.
Kits4Kids University (K4KU) is committed to enhancing the specialised knowledge and skills of people serving in the educational, social and community sector. It provides training in a range of specialised areas such as social work, special education, counselling and therapy for the sector’s personnel to better meet the needs of various populations including people with disabilities, children, youth, families and the elderly.
In its strive towards this commitment, K4KU partners with recognised universities, tertiary institutions and specialist centres and professional associations, overseas and locally, to offer Professional Development programmes which include bachelor degrees, diplomas, specialist diplomas and certificates. These programmes aimed to provide formalised professional training and higher learning in key social areas. Our flagship degrees include the Bachelor and Master of Education (Special Education). Programmes like these are ideal for social service sector staff and members of the public interested in pursuing educational qualifications in various disciplines.
To keep specialised competence of the social service professionals and volunteers at a forefront, K4KU also provides Skills Development programmes consisting of short skills-based workshops catered for continuing education and training of the sector’s manpower in various sub-sectors to equip social service staff with useful knowledge and practical skills. They are generally categorised under disability; children, youth and family; eldercare; and cross sector.
A Word from President of Kits4Kids University - Prof Dr Eric Lim
Welcome to Kits4Kids University (K4KU). Since our founding, our goal has been the same: to provide a quality education, with a focus on excellence in teaching and learning. K4KU’s small classes ensure individualized attention to each of our students from our outstanding faculty. Working closely with students both inside and outside of the classroom, many K4KU instructors are also practitioners in their field, bringing clinical and professional expertise to the classroom.

In addition, the K4KU global office is actively involved in the university curriculum, campus, and programming. We work with a variety of constituents and programs, both on campus and around the world, including assisting incoming international students and faculty with their transition to living and studying in the Madagascar.
