The Education Innovation Africa 2015 has been officially launched today, June 8 2015, at the Visa Oshwal Centre in Nairobi. The three day conference and exhibition will gather leading Kenyan and African policymakers, educators together with the best of regional and international investors, entrepreneurs and technology providers.
Education Innovation Africa will focus on how the private sector can help deliver national and regional education plans, by providing financing, improving infrastructure, investing in new education models and also by providing innovative low-cost technology solutions.
The event will also showcase the significant work already underway across Kenya and the East African community in improving education delivery through innovative partnerships, strategies and technologies. It will highlight how increased collaboration between Government, private and social investors can help to meet domestic and regional education goals, and facilitate the creation of new programmes that will improve educational attainment across East Africa.
