Re-Designing Education across Africa to Empower  Teachers, Children and Entire Communities.


Education is a human right. We believe that no-matter where a child lives this right should be protected, so we designed a sustainable educational model, the first of its kind, that will provide children living in rural poverty across sub-Saharan Africa with a world-class education. Designed by African educators, our shareable, innovative curriculum, can be adapted for individual countries/localities for large-scale success. Success for us means imparting to children the knowledge, practical, business and entrepreneurial skills they need to be global citizens, lift themselves out of poverty and breathe new life into their communities. 

Plant A Seed

The Shule Foundation started with a seed of hope to bring quality education to children living across rural Africa.  Now, that seed has sprouted into the Kitalu Shule, Miche and Watoto Mtanni Projects.  

Kitalu Shule means "nursery school" in Swahili. Early childhood education is almost non-existence in the rural villages, Shule is going to build pre-schools where there are none. Read more about our Kitalu Shule Project here.

Our newest undertaking, Miche, means "seedling" in Swahili. It aims to cultivate not only the land but a new way of life for local villagers. Learn how we will invest in women, girls and entire communities here. 

Watoto Mtanni means "street kids" in Swahili. Our program will move children off the streets of the slum, into our rehabilitation center and back in school. Click here to learn how we plan to give these children their childhood back.

Our Mission

Shule will expand the reach and availability of a quality education to provide global opportunities for the next generation of change-makers and leaders living in rural Africa.
