Education in Africa

Co-hosted with HP and Teach For All, the Transforming Education in Africa Summit is. a virtual event that brings together educators, NGOs, politicians, tech entrepreneurs, and leading figures in African education. It provides an opportunity to bring issues critical to the continent’s education crisis to the table and to turn ideas into action.

Our inaugural Transforming Education in Africa Summit was held on Saturday, 11th February. You can now catch the event on-demand!

Following on from our Transforming Education in Africa Summit earlier this year, we hosted a series of special events with inspirational speakers to delve deeper into the question of an Africa in which every child receives a quality education.

The three virtual events brought together the finalists of the Africa Education Medal 2023 – all changemakers and leaders in their field – they shared their unique knowledge and experience of transforming education in Africa..
