Mwabu has reached the second round of the Sierra Leone Education Innovation Challenge (SLEIC), an Education Outcome Fund (EOF) project aiming to improve learning outcomes and measure the efficacy of interventions.
Supplying refugee camps in Zambia with e-learning
Working with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency
We are proud to be working with UNHCR to supply Mwabu e-learning content and 500 tablet devices to refugee camps in the northern part of Zambia.
In December 2020 Mwabu was successful in winning the UNHCR tender for supplying and distributing digital content, devices and all necessary accessories. Our interactive digital content includes illustrations, animation, questions and activities, all with learning examples showing African characters and culture, written and voiced in English and also, for early grades, 7 local languages.
The focus of this work is to ensure that refugees have access to digital learning materials that cover all the required learning areas, while ensuring that the content is aligned to the national curriculum.
Mwabu has pre-qualified for the Ghana Accountability for Learning Programme (GALOP). After submitting a successful expression of interest, we are progressing to the second round of proposals.
In partnership with UNICEF and the Zambian Ministry of General Education, we have adapted our lessons for radio broadcast, as an emergency response to school closures due to COVID 19. The initiative is aimed specifically at supporting vulnerable children in hard-to-reach places that have no access to internet services or television.
