Educate! works within existing schools and national education systems. The components of our model are adapted to fit the context of each country we work in, so our in-school programs look different in each country. In Rwanda, our in-school program is called the Educate! Exchange.

The Educate! Exchange


Educate! was invited by Rwanda’s Ministry of Education in 2015 to serve as a technical advisor to Rwanda’s national curriculum reform and supports implementation of the reform through in-school support and teacher training.


Our Rwanda model includes:

...of course, [my teaching] has changed. This time we are teaching by doing. Previously, it was as if you were lecturing, and now, much emphasis is on putting into practice what you have taught.
— Tumukuratire Andrew, Teacher, Gabiro High School, Rwanda

As part of our technical advisory work, we integrated three key components of our model into Rwanda’s upper secondary entrepreneurship curriculum.

After a three-year rollout process, 210,000 students annually across Rwanda are receiving this curriculum.
