Gold, Silver and Bronze Winner of International Reimagine Education Awards. Creator of Africa’s first digital learning campus model for rural communities.
Of 100 children that start school in South Africa, approximately 60 will reach their final year, 37 will graduate, and only 12 will access university. Almost none will be adequately equipped to participate in the fourth industrial revolution.
We challenge HOW we learn, WHAT we learn, and WHO has access to learning. We reimagine education for rural communities, from preschooler to adult.
We are a social enterprise with a three-year vision to generate 80% of our own income. Our tech start-up already employs over 20 previously unemployed youth.
“The ‘digital divide’ is very much part of what we must address. The ultimate goal is that our children should at all times be exposed to an enhanced education process, one that will free them from the sorry state of poverty, ignorance and helplessness as well as allow them to be part of the digitization that is happening worldwide. GWF is helping these rural young people do just that.”
“We visited one of GWF’s campuses and were inspired by their remarkable combination of high tech with high touch, by their two generation strategies that offer state-of-the-art digital learning platforms for children and adults, and by their adaptive capacity to link rural communities with 21st century skill building.”
“In a wild new world, it is vital that we ALL need to find a better, more inclusive way of participating. Wonder-filled learning is fundamental to that mission for children from all walks of life and GWF’s digital learning campuses have proven that we can challenge the old rules of education and, by default, the old rules of participation too.”
