The Education System In Africa
Education is a basic human right that is recognized globally and documented in many education policies even among African countries. Despite this fact, a majority of rural citizens are denied access to education in general due a myriad of challenges, ranging from social and economic, to cultural and geographical dispositions of an area.
While efforts to expand provisions for education in both rural and urban areas have been undertaken by local governments across Africa, reports show that many urban areas still encounter difficulties in access to quality education. Rural areas are often deprived of any education services. More often schools are few and located far from the people. There is a marked shortage of teachers and learning materials and other educational resources such as libraries.
These are just some of the innumerable setbacks which make rural education in Africa unattractive and challenging. These experiences entail that growing up in a rural area in Africa, represents transitioning into adulthood without a decent education.
African Hero Schools
We are focused on bringing learning into the 4th industrial age with the inclusion of a fully serviced Computer Sciences labs, with built in computers and internet infrastructure.
The African Hero schools consist of 8 classrooms that facilitate the learning of up to 240 pupils. Security is of a primary concern in the schools, thus we have built in CCTV across the premises and have biometric access at the entrance of the school ensuring our pupils are always safe.
At the entrance of our schools we place office space to include an area for a principal to be based, a receptionist as well as 4 admin offices for additional support staff. Our schools have been designed with a center courtyard for assemblies, learner socialization and to provide a community center feel to our schools.
