OUR VISION: ACCESS FOR ALL
Empower Ethiopian students to transform their lives and their nation
Education for Ethiopia is a social enterprise that aims to provide digital education to Ethiopian students in local languages. Ethiopia is a country of many diverse languages and cultures, with about 40% of the population under the age of 14.Our hope is to empower the Ethiopian students with lessons in their own languages, so that they may transform their lives and their nation.
THE LANGUAGE ISSUE
One of the challenges that Ethiopian students face is the fact that higher education is provided in English and many students are not fluent enough to absorb complicated lessons in the STEM subjects. We hope to fill in this gap between the students and the lessons in the classroom. We cannot replace schools. But we can certainly supplement them.
MANY DEMANDS ON THIER TIME
Our students have many demands on their time. They work, help their families in and outside their homes and shoulder serious responsibilities.
WHERE WE CAN HELP
We provide content in local languages, using context and explanations that students are more familiar with.
Our digital lessons enable them to learn at their own pace, with the ability to pause, rewind and repeat in a way that they are not able to in the classroom.
Even more importantly, most of our instruction materials are in engaging video format, sourced from from world-class content providers from around the globe.
We have no doubt that with the right support...
...Our students will reach their potential.
THE YIMARU PLATFORM IS:
A student-facing platform that provides K-12 STEM lessons as well as foreign language training
“Yimaru” is our student-facing platform that reaches students through a Youtube channel, a website and a mobile application. On Yimaru, we are building our K-12 STEM lessons as well as foreign language training.
As we grow, we hope to include other platforms that cater to vocational education, higher education and personal development.
