Talent Acquisition Manager

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 Nairobi and Mombasa, with over 80,000 learners regularly using our app and developed a training process that leads to over 90% of new teachers actively using the app every day after only one training session. And our plans do not stop here.
