Afrelib Creates a Mobile eLearning Toolkit That Puts Teachers at the Centre and Focuses on Students Learning.
Africa’s population is the youngest among all the continents; 50% of Africans are 19 years old or younger. The current trends in the education attainment pose a sizeable challenge to Africa’s future development. In addition, Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa, and is young and growing quickly, with 63 percent of the population under the age of 24 and a high average relative annual growth rate of 3.24 percent, a full half a percentage point higher than the African average.

Afrelib has setup up a programme aimed at creating effective teaching and classrooms in African schools. The programme works with individual African schools starting with Nigeria. The work with each school is run as a fully funded project in its own right. Afrelib collaborates with each school project to deploy the Afrelib Mobile eLearning (AMeL) toolkit which consists of four essential modules:
