GWF believes in a future where rural African people are confident participants of the fourth industrial revolution. They are agents of change seamlessly plugged in to local communities and global networks. Together with those who are reimagining education with us, GWF will continue to create innovative digital learning campuses, responsive programmes and demand-led social enterprises, all working together to create an accessible, opportunity-packed world for our next generation of rural Africans. Our goal is for each regional cluster of campuses to deliver wonder-filled 21st century learning opportunities to rural and marginalised communities. Each cluster will be 80% self-funded, 100% community-powered and 75% women-led.
The world is changing fast and the future will not exclude us. In fact, the future needs us.
An African tree. A human finger-print. A digital motherboard. These are three significant symbols in our story. Our logo combines all three into one, symbolising the power of access to digital education to transform the lives of young people in rural African communities.
An African Tree: Terabytus Digitata.
Inspired by the ancient baobab, under the tree so much happens: Story-telling, community-building, the passing on of knowledge, folklore and traditions and of course, learning. Our tree speaks to our heritage – a teacher and her two students out in the African bush learning under a tree. Our tree is a place for learning and sharing – a wireless connection to knowledge. Its where ancient wisdom meets new digital knowledge.

A Human Finger-Print.
In this digital world, your finger and finger print can open up a world of possibilities, ideas, and creativity. This represents the opportunity we give learners, and the choice they make to show up every day to learn and change their trajectory. It also represents the story of the individual human. Digital is amazing, but equally important is the human touch.
A Digital Motherboard.
The nodes of the motherboard symbolise the Fourth Industrial Revolution* and our effort to give a gateway to all people to be part of it. Digital is one of the key languages of access and exclusion from it is not an option.
*The Fourth Industrial Revolution can be described as the advent of “cyber-physical systems” involving entirely new capabilities for people and machines. Read more here.
