Our Current Work

Serving children at government-run primary schools

We launched a two-school pilot with Rising Academy Network in September 2022, expanding to an additional 20 schools in January 2023. We plan to roll out to 95 schools by September 2024, serving over 20,000 students per year.

Liberia will be one of the largest implementations of our edtech solution in West Africa over the next two years. The project will be a proof point that will support expansion across the region and beyond.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Liberia was already faced with the challenge of emerging from a prolonged and brutally destructive period of civil unrest followed by the 2015 school closure due to the Ebola Viral Disease (EVD) outbreak.
