Schools & Teachers

We sell tablets loaded with learning materials to schools and teachers, along with headsets, projectors and solar chargers.
The Mwabu Academy provides teacher training and mentoring to facilitate continuous career development. In 2017, we will have a mobile offer for teachers as well as a data analytics package for tracking learners’ progress.

Education Ministries & Governments

Education ministries are governments’ lead advisors on education. They shape the direction education is going in, fund schools, set standards and curriculums, train teachers and run exams, and they are accountable to people and parliaments. 

 

We do everything we can to make sure that our learning materials fit the requirements of a national curriculum and work closely with local specialists. We are happy to talk to ministries about possible e-learning roll-out proposals.

Parents & Home Users

Learners and parents can buy tablets to use at home. They’re a great resource for self-study or for parents to work on with their children, whether or not learners are using them at school. We have a range of options open to buyers that include direct sales, payroll deduction and subscription schemes. Please check your country-specific website to find out where our tablets are sold in your country.

Donors & Agencies

Mwabu works with locally established NGOs and agencies as well as global agencies and organisations around the world. In some instances, locally registered NGOs fund and run the implementation of the Mwabu programme in selected schools.

 

Mwabu is also working with regional and global agencies supporting implementations at government and ministry level, aligned with national strategies for education. Find out more about our case studies and recent projects below and our blog.

“Parents with children in other nearby schools are thinking of bringing their children to our school just because our school is using these Mwabu tablets. Very often, we receive requests for transfers but we canʼt accommodate everyone. I wish this programme was given to other schools too because I know that most schools donʼt have enough textbooks and would benefit from Mwabu.”

Our Partners

We divide our partners into three different categories:

 

Technology Partners

We work with world class market leading technology companies to create bespoke platforms and services for the design, production and distribution of Mwabu content throughout Africa.

 

Implementation Partners

We work with local and national partners to implement Mwabu programmes as a sustainable solution to our customers around Africa. Our partners are experts when it comes to working with schools and organisations to ensure the most effective understanding and use of Mwabu content.

 

 

 

Corporate Social Responsibility Partners

It is becoming increasingly important for organisations to give back to their communities. Through various programmes and approaches, Mwabu offers opportunities for businesses to engage with schools, either through the Adopt a School campaign or through more specific opportunities like the Bambisana programme. 

 

Please contact us if you'd like to work with us. 

Partners we work with:

The iAfrica Foundation

The iAfrica Foundation was set up in 2015 to find sustainable technology solutions that can transform education standards in
Sub-Saharan Africa. We work closely with iAfrica to identify schools and communities in some of the poorest and most rural locations who would benefit most from a subsidised Mwabu programme. 

 

 

If you are an individual donor and would like to get involved and support a school, please contact iAfrica on info@iafricafoundation.org for more information.

Projects

The Mwabu programme has been proven to increase children's numeracy and literacy skills. We run projects in conjunction with major donors and bilateral agencies such as USAID, DfID, and UNICEF. Usually this involves deploying our e-learning-solution in hard-to-reach environments.

Mwabu Bambisana

We created the Bambisana initiative in collaboration with safari lodges and their guests to bring education to rural Africa and transform the lives of primary school children in and around the lodges' surrounding communities.
