Project partner: Edulution
Primary schools in Zambia and Namibia are hopelessly overfilled. A teacher teaches about 60 children in his class at the same time. The children vary in age and development; time and material resources are limited. Effective learning is particularly difficult under these conditions.
This is where Edulution gets to work. Edulution supplements the state school systems in Zambia and Namibia with so-called learning centres, where the children can learn individually after the regular lessons – basic knowledge in mathematics and English is taught with the help of tablets and special learning software.
Each child is given its own account. This way they can learn individually, actively and at their own pace. The data is evaluated and transmitted to the coaches. This allows them to cater to personal strengths and weaknesses.
Tablets and learning software must be robust. Many learning centres are located in a hot and dusty environment. The mobile learning centres also work offline and can be used even in areas without a power supply.
Currently around 120 coaches are working in Zambia and Namibia. They support the children in their learning progress in mathematics and English and also help with the use of the learning software.
Edulution has already opened about 50 learning centres in Zambia, Namibia and South Africa. Thus more than 13.000 pupils so far have received profound basic knowledge in mathematics and English and a better persepctive for their future.
The foundation supports projects that offer people “Help to help themselves”.
