Senior Training Officer (Kenya)

Quality education for all

We believe that all children should be given the chance to reach their full potential. However, more than 600 million children in the world do not achieve foundational skills like literacy and basic numeracy – despite the majority of them going to school.

At EIDU, we are creating the next-generation ed-tech platform for children who lack access to the high-quality education that all children deserve. We currently serve 250,000 active students in low-cost private and public schools in Kenya, and we will scale nationwide by 2026. External researchers conducted a year long randomised control trial, midline results indicate that having EIDU in schools adds the equivalent of at least 0.8 years of learning development. 

EIDU is funded by well-known development agencies, foundations, and impact investors such as Founders Pledge, Share, BMZ (German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development), Google, and we are about to tap into the billion-dollar education market.

With a mission like EIDU’s, diversity of thought and background within our team is crucial. We value those who can bring a diverse perspective to our platform and help us provide high-quality education to as many children as we can across the globe.
