Social edtech startup: educating the poorest 600 million children
Over 600 million children are not achieving basic literacy or numeracy, drastically diminishing their chance at a fulfilling life. With the rapid penetration of smartphones in Africa, for the first time in history, we will be able to reach these children at a massive scale.
EIDU’s mission is to educate the world’s poorest millions of children by giving them the world’s best learning content at their fingertips. As a start, we have created a learning app for young children in low-income areas, where the high-quality teaching the children need is scarce. Our solution enables children to learn by themselves, at their own pace, at a fraction of the cost of other alternatives.
We’re growing fast – from 10,000 active learners in 2019 through 30,000 in early 2021 to an expected 1,000,000 in 2023. We are operating in Lagos, Nairobi and Mombasa, and are planning to expand to Accra. Over the next years, we will assist the world’s poorest children by building the next generation’s global EdTech learning platform.
Our team of over 25 is currently based in Berlin, Lagos, Nairobi and Mombasa.
