Education has the power to transform lives. Equipped with skills, knowledge, and confidence, educated children have the potential to lift themselves out of
poverty and reach their full capacity. Yet problems such as under-resourcing, poor infrastructure, and low levels of attendance – particularly at the secondary level – have meant that Tanzania has struggled to make its vision of ‘education for all’ a reality.
Shule Direct is a Tanzanian social enterprise whose goal is to provide local and accessible digital educational content for young learners across Tanzania and Africa to improve their learning outcomes. The organisation works with qualified teachers to create digitised learning notes for 13 secondary school subjects, as well as tutorials, quizzes, and multimedia content. It delivers these via web and mobile platforms, and also as an offline learning management system.
The enterprise delivers web and mobile platforms as supplementary and alternative solutions to the knowledge and information divide for secondary school students. Along with the secondary school curriculum, it offers life skills and financial education content via a web platform, a mobile application
for android and iOS, an SMS platform and an offline learning management system for schools.
