How would you describe your solution to a non-technical person?
Every day, the Afrilearn studios host expert tutors who teach different subjects in front of cameras. These seasoned tutors simplify difficult subjects and topics in entertaining ways, resulting in thousands of engaging video lessons covering government-approved curricula. This helps learners to assimilate easily, because whatever we learn with pleasure, we never forget.
These video lessons are then developed into engaging animation and deployed to subscribers through app, web, and data-free Dongle services at highly affordable rates for primary and secondary school students (ages 6–18) across Anglophone West Africa, a market of effectively over 300 million people.
In addition to Afrilearn's powerful and iterative profiles for students, teachers, schools, and parents, our vast and culture-specific education video library will also be optimized for video streaming, offline download, and playback on any device, with affordable monthly, quarterly, and annual subscription packages.
What social issue or impact area does your solution aim to solve?
Irrespective of their background or circumstance, every child deserves access to quality education, in line with Sustainable Development Goal 4. This is one of our areas of focus and social concern at Afrilearn. Widely described as the Netflix of Education for young Africans, Afrilearn’s social impact also cuts across SDGs 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth) and 17 (Partnerships to achieve the Goal).
What is unique about your solution and how is it different from what currently exists?
Beyond leveraging social learning to deliver tech skills (coding content), Afrilearn’s competitive advantages include leveraging storytelling and personalization to deliver highly immersive video lessons for improved learning outcomes at the most affordable price.
Beyond our proven track record and high potential, our team is incredibly passionate about leveraging technology to solve Africa’s complex education problems towards achieving global good.
