Our client is transforming education by attacking one of the emerging world’s biggest problems: inadequate access to and quality of education for the children of families living on less than $2/day.  As of January 2014, our client is operating 359 academies in Kenya with over 100,000 pupils. 

They are one of the fastest growing education companies in the world with plans to open 100+ new academies in Kenya alone in 2014; and aggressive global expansion planned for 2014 and beyond.

They utilize a research-proven, scripted-learning education methodology coupled with big data (all teachers have tablets for instruction, assessment, and data-gathering) to profitably deliver high quality education at less than $6 per child per month.
