Spotlight on education in Africa

We are partnering with the Mastercard Foundation in our endeavour to map the status of knowledge across the continent and the education systems deployed to provide it.

Mastercard Foundation has already committed massive resources to working on ways to enable our youth to become fit for purpose in the knowledge based world.

Together and with the help and support of our readers, we can crack this nut and over time, help make education in Africa one of the best in the world.
