With high student-to-teacher ratios and lack of quality study materials, Kenyan children lack access to the resources they need to advance their education. As a result, roughly half of Kenyan secondary-age students are not enrolled in school. The situation is similar throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.
Low-cost mobile phones can deliver affordable, interactive study content. Through sustained engagement with digital studying platforms, students increase their test scores, which facilitates access to and improved performance in secondary school.
