Impact Network developed the eSchool 360 to address the widespread inequality in global education, which disproportionately affects children in rural Africa. The eSchool 360 is a holistic technological solution that delivers high-quality, low-cost, and sustainable education to children in under-served areas. The core of the model is e-learning technology: tablets and projectors provided by our Zambian partner, iSchool, loaded with an active curriculum approved by the Zambian government. Around this, we have built a successful model for holistic education through the provision of intensive teacher coaching, weekly management, continual evaluation and oversight, solar power, and community ownership. This model is running in 40+ schools and impacting over 6,000 students at a cost of $5 a month per student — a fraction of the cost of other schools.
