Commitment to Action

Warwick in Africa: Enhancing Education in Africa

Commitment by

University of Warwick

In 2010, the University of Warwick committed to teaching 7,000 young learners and providing tailored professional development for more than 350 teachers in South Africa, Tanzania, and Ghana. Through the Warwick in Africa (WIA) program teachers will be trained in math and English, while gifted learners will be supported through the university's International Gateway for Gifted Youth. Using venture philanthropy principles, the project has developed to be scalable, replicable, and sustainable. The WIA program was established in 2006 to transform the way math is taught in African schools. From a small pilot it has scaled up to teach learners, coach teachers, and identify gifted learners in South Africa and Tanzania.
