Bring Low-Cost e-Learning to Africa
Help Impact Network Upgrade Five Schools for $5,000 each

Impact Network has innovated a low-cost e-learning model to bring quality education to underserved childen in Africa for as low as $20 per student. This is an unprecedentedly low amount, at least 3 times less than government schools and half that of other low-cost methods. We are currently operating five community schools that need to be upgraded with this new e-learning model.

What's in a $5,000 Upgrade?

Solar Electric

The school will be equipped with solar panels to power both e-Learning as well as social enterprises. Our power consumption requires 2 large solar panels, 2 deep cycle batteries, an inverter, as well as wiring and installation.

Projector-Based e-Learning

To improve the quality of the education provided by our uncertified teachers, we will provide a projector and a netbook fully loaded with iSchool's Grade 1 curriculum. The lessons were designed by 8 professional teachers in Lusaka to be interactive
and follow the government curriculum.

Social Enterprise Center

Adjacent to the school, we will construct a small center from which to operate our social enterprises. These enterprises tap into the solar electric and will serve to generate extra income for sustainably operating the schools year over year.
