Innovation Lab Schools

Changing education, Changing lives

We, as a network of educators that seek improved education for students in rural areas of Africa, are bringing learning to students. By equipping lab rooms with laptops, internet connection, educational resources, and facilitators of learning, we are able to connect African students with schools across 90 countries via video conferencing, giving students the opportunity to interact and support each other.

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

Children in many countries in Africa and around the world do not have access to quality education. Ultimately, this comes down to a lack of financial resources, technology, and trained educators. As a result, millions and millions of today's youth, and tomorrow's youth, are being left behind. Not only do they miss out on the opportunity to succeed, but the world misses out on their potential.

HOW ARE WE HELPING TO RESOLVE?

Innovation Lab Schools are being developed in several countries, in collaboration with Jane Goodall, offering a free and quality education to hundreds of thousands of children. Students are guided through a customized Global Goals curricula on STEAM, design thinking, and sustainability that was collaboratively created by volunteer experts from around the world, and they are empowered to take action in both their local and global communities. Each group of students is guided by one local teacher and has interactions with students and teachers from around the world. This relationship and framework, with many points of connection and perspective, allows for empathy to be central for all participants.

Impact

We aim to train 10,000 teachers and offer a free quality education to 1,000,000 students by end of 2020
