Human Resource Officer

Social edtech startup: educating the poorest 600 million children

At  EIDU,  we  want  to  bring  quality  education to the world’s poorest 600 million children by giving them the world’s best digital learning content at their fingertips. Most of them are not achieving minimum proficiency levels in reading and math today. We have created a learning app platform for young children that works in the  lowest-income  areas  where  it’s  especially  hard  to  get  the  high-quality education  that  all  children  deserve.  Our  solution  enables  children  to  learn  by themselves, at their own pace, and enables teachers to access daily lesson plans to guide their teaching. All of this at a fraction of the cost of other alternatives.

We have established EIDU in public pre-primary schools in 7 counties in Kenya (Nairobi, Mombasa, Kiambu, Murang’a, Embu, Machakos and Makueni), with over 95,000 learners regularly using our app and developed a training process that leads to 99% of new teachers actively using the app every day after only one training session. And our plans do not stop here.
