Tembo Education

IBM called us the Uber for Education.

Jasmine is a mother from a Nigerian slum in our program & she doesn’t have education for her children, but she does have a mobile phone.

So we train & certify Home Educators from Jasmine’s own community to teach her thru SMS text messages. Jasmine then educates her children in her own home.

For educating her children and answering a quiz correctly, Jasmine is rewarded with free minutes and texts to her mobile phone, gamifying the learning process
Tembo created a Home Educator network using mobile phones to educate 0-6 year old children in slums
