In 2017, we launched an expansion to bring the eSchool 360 program to 35 additional schools in the Eastern Province in Zambia. This initiative has been funded through the Board of American Institutes for Research (AIR), whose members visited the pilot program in Zambia in the spring of 2016. AIR will also design and implement a cluster-randomized controlled trial to determine the impact of the program on children’s learning outcomes.
These efforts will bring a quality education to an estimated 3,500 additional children in 35 schools across three districts of Zambia’s Eastern Province, and build important evidence on the effectiveness of the eSchool 360 program across three districts in Zambia.
Our Pilot Schools
In 2013, we completed our initial pilot of the eSchool 360 program across 9 schools in Katete District. After launching the expansion project, we continue to work with these initial schools to pilot new innovations that have the potential to help rural community schools across the country.

In 2016, we created a virtual reality experience to bring our supporters inside our schools in rural Zambia. Click here to watch the 360 video and learn more.
