CATALYZING TECH EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE FUTURES
Kabakoo Academies is a mission-driven enterprise building a pan-African network of creative schools for sustainability-focused tech education. We catalyze the emergence of sustainable and inclusive innovation by merging high-tech and low-tech (local knowledge). Our mission is to accelerate the world’s transition toward desirable and sustainable futures by providing locally relevant and transformative learning experiences. Kabakoo has been recognized by the likes of the African Union, the UNESCO, and the World Economic Forum which has recently selected Kabakoo Academies as one of the 16 Schools of the Future around the world.
Kabakoo Academies are houses of wondering; places of hybridized learning, part school, part maker-space, part citizen-science lab. Our curriculum is designed for learners to acquire and develop advanced leapfrogging skills. Our problem-based pedagogy and our focus on local relevance ensure real-world success for our learners. Either as employee or entrepreneur.
Kabakoo is a changemaker in the learning space. In less than two years of operations, in addition to being selected by the UNESCO as partner for its "Imagining Africa's Future" Program, Kabakoo has been selected by the World Economic Forum as global pioneer for the future of education thanks to our impactful and scalable model. Furthermore, Kabakoo has been featured in the African Union's list of the most innovative educational projects of the continent. Moreover, thanks to our engagement in environmental education, Kabakoo has been selected as Non-State Actor in the global Coalition on Climate and Clean Air.
We accelerate the world’s transition toward desirable and sustainable futures by providing locally relevant and transformative learning experiences to the African youths allowing them to leapfrog into better futures. For them and their communities.
We are a network of learning campuses with the mission to provide African youths the means to discover themselves and build new ways of living together for today and tomorrow. We develop agile leapfroggers who can embrace the complexity of uncertain and rapidly changing environments. Our approach to learning put wondering, as source of creative curiosity, at the center of a learning process dedicated to small-scale manufacturing and decentralized production systems in line with African realities.
At Kabakoo we recognize and value the symbiosis between Nature and the Human. The symbiosis is lived through the sustainable architecture of the Kabakoo campuses which are constructions in local materials adapted to their environment. This increases the environmental awareness of the students.
Kabakoo is radically inclusive. Because everyone has the right to learn. We are because you are.
