Eneza is the most widely used mobile education platform in Africa with local content. We started with SMS and have released web and smartphone versions.
Our Core Values
We Foster Education
We offer a virtual tutor and teacher’s assistant – a way for both students and teachers to access valuable courses and assessments while interacting with live instructors – all through low-cost mobile phones. Students can access locally-aligned tutorials, tips, and assessments, as well as a leaderboard, Wikipedia text and live teacher chat through USSD/SMS, an online web app, an offline desktop app, and an Android app. Individual parents, students or teachers can buy a subscription to our courses for a low weekly or monthly fee.
We Pursue Excellence
Eneza’s mission is to make 50 million kids across rural Africa smarter through the use of ubiquitous mobile technology. To date, we’ve reached over 1,600,000 unique users in Kenya. From a recent customer survey, around 30% of our users are outside the formal school setting. Super users include youth in conflict areas of Kenya, including Garissa and the Dadaab Refugee Camp. Eneza has also begun a pilot in Tanzania and Ghana.
We Practice Honesty
Eneza is a for-profit, social enterprise based in Nairobi, Kenya with a team of 15 full-time staff and 40 contracted master teachers. All of our content and technology is original, created locally, and we ensure our content undergoes approval by the regulating curriculum authority.
We traverse all boundaries
Eneza believes in simplicity and access to quality education in some of the most remote regions in Africa. We believe we’re democratizing education by providing access to high-quality, highly-sought after content that improves our customers’ lives and knowledge.
Every day, you’re on the front lines, dedicated to making a difference. Meet the people behind the scenes, dedicated to supporting you every step of the way.
