Transforming education, transforming Africa

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. 

In the decades leading up to the pandemic, Africa had been making great strides in boosting school enrolment. That same era brought forth innovation and a renewed spirit to transform the entire education landscape. Co-hosted by T4 Education and Teach For All, and HP,  the Transforming Education in Africa Summit is focused on how we protect and expand upon these vital gains in the face of the greatest crisis global education has ever faced. Education, after all, holds the key to Africa’s future.

The summit is free to attend and will take place online on Saturday February 11 at 9am GMT, 10am WAT, 11am SAST/CAT, 12pm EAT.
