For the first time ever, the Injini programme will be opened up to non-profits.

Eligibility Criteria

  • They actively encourage applications from any African country.


Everyone in the program will be covered for flights to and from Cape Town, for accommodation here, and receive a small allowance for extra living costs incurred while in Cape Town.

Guiding Principles

  1. Africa leads, not follows
    • The greatest challenge & opportunity in EdTech lies in Africa – it will produce the greatest innovations
  2. Grassroots ideas, global impact
    • It will be teachers & entrepeneurs – not big bureaucracies – who realise technology’s potential in education
  3. Empower teachers, not replace them
    • They will help teachers deepen & widen impact, not try (and fail) to make them obsoleteEvidence-driven, with a laser focus on results
  4. Evidence-driven, with a laser focus on results
    • They should reject business-as-usual & embrace new ideas, but pay very close attention to the evidence of what works to improve education
