About the Company

 

Students from Sub-Saharan Africa are under-represented in the world’s best universities. In the US, a country hosting 900,000 foreign students, only 31,000 of them come from that region. In contrast, 100,000 come from India, a country with same population size and GDP per capita as Sub-Saharan Africa. This discrepancy stems from the inadequacy of traditional secondary school education on the continent and unaffordability of most international schools.? Enko Education aims to democratise affordable, high quality education, by building one of the largest networks of schools in the region. We designed an international secondary-school model significantly more affordable than any other international secondary-school. Through this model, we hope to drastically enlarge the access to IB programmes in Africa. Enko Education Investments is supported by LiquidAfrica, a financial advisory company and Enko Capital, a pan-african asset management company.
