Eneza Education’s mission is to make 50 million students across rural Africa smarter through the use of ubiquitous mobile technology. We offer a virtual tutor and teacher’s assistant – a way for both students and teachers to access valuable courses and assessments while interacting with live instructors – all through a low-cost mobile phone. Students can access locally-aligned tutorials, tips, and assessments, as well as a leaderboard, Wikipedia text and live teacher chat through USSD/SMS, an online web app, an offline desktop app, and an Android app. Individual parents, students or teachers can buy a subscription to our courses for a low weekly or monthly fee.
To date, we’ve reached over 420,000 unique users across over 5,000 schools in Kenya. From a recent customer survey, we’ve found around 30% of our users to be outside the formal school setting. Super users include youth in conflict areas of Kenya, including Garissa and the Dadaab Refugee Camp. Eneza has also just begun a small pilot in Tanzania and will be launching in Ghana in September.
Eneza is a for-profit, social enterprise based in Nairobi, Kenya with a team of 15 full-time staff and 40 contracted master teachers. All of our content and technology is original and created locally, and we ensure our content undergoes approval by the regulating curriculum authority.
