Education

All the infrastructure in the world is meaningless without human support. Millions of Africans – children and  adults – hold the potential to transform their communities into healthier and more sustainable vehicles of change. However, future innovators first need an education. Especially important are the youth (nearly 50% of Africa’s population is under the age of 18).
