Africa’s education and training programs suffer from low-quality teaching and learning, as well as inequalities and exclusion at all levels. Even with a substantial increase in access to basic education, a large number of children still remain out of school.
Lack of schooling is preventing children living in Africa from learning to read or write, leading to more problems such as job shortages. In Africa, over 72 million children are not attending school. Other reasons children are deprived of education are gender issues, religion, war and health.
Fafali believes that access to quality education is a necessity and a fundamental right for every child regardless of their constraint. We provide the means and access to quality education for children of underserved communities. We are committed to cultivating the optimum academic potential of each child.
STEM+Arts – (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics + Arts)
A lack of good education in STEM+Arts subjects is holding back African growth and depriving its youth of career opportunities. It’s well known that Africa’s long-term economic prospects are being constrained by severe skills shortages in many vital sectors, including accounting and finance. However, one of the areas that requires immediate attention is STEM+Arts. If Africa does not start building capacity in these subjects, its progress towards achieving sustainable and comprehensive growth will be severely challenged.
STEM+Arts education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM+Arts to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.
In addition to learning science, technology, engineering, arts and math in a fun and engaging environment, we help our engineers-in-training develop problem-solving skills and discover how the world around them works. These skills are extremely beneficial for students of all ages. They’ve proven to inspire parents and kids to learn more about these critical subjects and how they may benefit our future.
Designed to spark the interest of children in STEM from the early stages of life. The program teaches basic computer, app and web design, robotics, computer programming, graphic design, videography, photography, etc.
Makes available computers and tablets to promote reading and encourage youth to use educational apps for STEM activities online. This also serve as a venue for Hackathons and other STEM events.
