Warwick in Africa

We very much hope that you will be able to join us for what promises to be an uplifting breakfast to hear about a programme which is making a huge difference to the education of thousands of African children and teachers.

What started as a small pilot in 2006, inspired and funded by our alumni and friends, has now grown into a highly successful programme with additional support of great partners like EY, helping us to reach over 160,000 learners and teachers in South Africa, Ghana and Tanzania. It has been transforming the teaching of Maths and English, having a major impact on the local teachers involved. We believe that education is a true liberator from poverty and we hope to continue to reach more learners and teachers in the years to come.

To tell the story of Warwick in Africa and how it has been able to make such a dramatic difference to attendance, performance, ambition and motivation, we have produced a number of films including the BBC Documentary, ‘Our World: Mission for Maths’ and a short film introduced by George Alagiah which are available on our homepage at www.warwick.ac.uk/warwickinafrica

Like many of the children and teachers Warwick in Africa is reaching, the programme is nowhere near fulfilling its potential. This year, and thanks to the support provided by the British High Commission in SA, we aim to strengthen our collaboration with Venda University in Limpopo to further enhance the quality of education in the schools.
