Mission

Facilitate access to educational resources

Motivation / Background

The educational infrastructure in Guinea leaves a lot to be desired and is far from ideal. Historically, a student studying in Guinea has to deal with constant disruption to their education cycle caused by the endless amount of strikes, occurring almost on a bi-monthly basis. This is the standard experience that even I, went through during my High-school days back in Guinea. Last year’s cohort (2020) however, had the misfortune of experiencing a world-wide pandemic atop the usual standard disruptions. Following the compulsory lockdown measures imposed by the government, the majority of students were stuck at home, unfortunately missing out on a significant part of their syllabus. While stuck at home, adequate alternative solutions to learning they could use, were very limited (and in most cases, inaccessible). The need for a model of education which solves the above problems for Guinean students is therefore very apparent. As part of this solution, I am proposing an App. A cross-platform E-learning mobile application (For both Android & IOS platforms).

Current status

To quickly begin offering a solution, the content currently being offered in the app is a curated list of Videos and Articles from around the Internet (Including sources like KhanAcademy, Youtube, CHMath and more). For a full list of credits/attributions, please see this link.

Development and curation is still on-going though. If you would like to help out, then please send an email to [email protected] or reach out to me here.
