According to the UN, over 200 million children and adolescents across Sub-Saharan Africa are not learning. And nearly 90 per cent of children between the ages of about 6 and 14 will not meet minimum proficiency levels in reading and math. Public education in Africa, especially in rural communities, is characterized by dilapidated buildings, lack of qualified teachers and inadequate learning resources among other issues. We are leveraging technology to remove these barriers and improve access to quality education for children and young people in Africa, starting with Nigeria.
