An Education Revolution is Upon Us!

At Maarifasasa, we believe more informed, knowledgeable and empowered citizens are better able to participate in society and the economy. Education is one tool that can be used to achieve this. And yet, access to quality education and educational services remains a conundrum in parts of the world like sub-Saharan Africa which has the highest rate of education exclusion.

At Maarifasasa, we strive to ensure access to quality education for all by eliminating the barriers that several learners often face the greatest of all being limited finances. To do this, we’re taking a radical approach using relevant technological tools to lead a new education revolution in Africa.

Education in the 21st century should focus on equipping learners with the skills they need to succeed in the new world such as problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration to mention a few. It must be one that recognizes the rapid transition from the information age to the experience age. To champion this new education revolution, we are committed to empowering everyone to teach someone something. Now that’s the future of education!
