African School for Excellence is a non-profit organization developing a unique concept: a self-sustaining network of elite independent secondary schools that anyone can afford. The African School for Excellence model was designed specifically with the needs and challenges of African secondary school scholars in mind. By focusing on the key levers for quality and capitalizing on our scholars' existing strengths, we can both greatly increase quality and reduce cost, arriving at a world-class, affordable program.
Exposing the learners at ASE to empowering technologies like 3D printing, arduino, programming, open-source software, giving them an opportunity to learn those at their own pace. The way we do this is by leaving behind electronic kits, arduino, books, PCs, software, video tutorials, and more.
The school runs on sponsorship and donations and will appreciate any donations like musical instruments, laptops, and more. But there is a immediate need for reliable internet connectivity
