Our model is built on best scaling practices and constant self-evaluation, and was specifically designed to scale. We spent the last 10 years, building the most replicable and cost-effective solution possible that can reach massive scale. We are now the largest youth skills provider in East Africa. Educate!’s long-term vision is to design solutions that measurably impact millions of youth across Africa each year.. Read more about Educate!'s model and plan to scale.
Educate! works hand-in-hand with governments towards system-level adoption of our solution to integrate skills-based education into national education systems. We have integrated key components of our model into national curricula of Uganda, Rwanda, and Kenya. Read more about our government engagement.
Educate! reaches a large number of youth at a low cost by delivering our model using existing school infrastructure, engaging exceptional Educate! graduates as Mentors, and implementing innovative technologies to cost-effectively manage and monitor our programs across great distances.
We invest deeply in monitoring & evaluation and our rigorous evaluations, including a randomized controlled trial, found that, toward the end of secondary, graduates of the program earn nearly DOUBLE the income of their peers. A follow-up RCT found that our graduates, four years later, demonstrate large and durable shifts in skills, coupled with significant improvements in education and gender-related outcomes.
