NEXT GENERATION AFRICA

Relying on smart and impactful solutions, we strive to increase people’s access to quality education

Education should be accessible to all, even in the most remote places in the world. But that is precisely what remains a major challenge, especially in sub-Saharan Africa.

Africa put high hopes into digitization - but in many places there is no functioning Internet access. This is particularly noticeable in schools: The few textbooks available are mostly outdated, and the Internet is often not available or too expensive.

Next Generation Africa offer solutions that work simply and effectively: Our offline Xulendo Digital Libraries provide digital education access, even for the blind spots on the Internet map. The Xulendo textbooks offers access to license-free educational materials - adapted to the Malawian curriculum and the needs of schools.

For me, the Digital Library is important for my life and my career because I want to become a medical doctor. It helps me to access information and to study more about science and skills, so that I can go to university.

Our work in Malawi

Our first project began in the north of Malawi in 2016. The region suffers from poor infrastructure and the schools lack educational materials. Here you can learn more about our impact and the situation on-site.

We are striving to ensure that all children worldwide - even in the most remote areas of Africa - have access to education. Our work has an immediate and long-term impact. We don't need cost-intensive technical equipment, because we want to enable learning with simple, understandable, energy-efficient and cost-effective technology. 

Nadja spent a year as a volunteer in Malawi. She was in charge of the digital library project at a girls' school in the north of the country. In her blog entry, she talks about her experiences on site and gives insights into the day-to-day life of the project.

With their remarkable digital education projects, the Next Generation Africa team is proving that the creative use of digital technologies can bring about greater educational justice, even under difficult conditions. With the help of scientifically based accompanying research, they manage to further improve the effectiveness and sustainability of their impressive engagement. I am delighted that we have been able to support the two initiators with a fellowship at CAIS.
