Large User Base

Where teaching meets technology.

Improving outcomes in challenging circumstances.

Mwabu exists to solve the challenges faced by primary school teachers in rural Africa. They use Moodle to improve student outcomes—through African-centric digital content; cost-effective hardware, teacher training, and online/offline data capture and analytics. Their solutions are purpose-built to support untrained teachers, large class sizes, and low resource settings.

Mwabu equips pupils with tablets preloaded with the Moodle Mobile App, which allows those without internet access or existing hardware to learn offline. The tablets are then sent back to Mwabu periodically to sync with Moodle.

Titus developed a custom Moodle platform for Mwabu which included the Moodle Mobile App—a fundamental part of the project. This allows them to raise standards of English, Maths, and Science in impoverished communities.

Plus, we integrated bespoke e-commerce functionality—allowing people without a credit or debit card to purchase access to the platform offline.

Moodle—making a difference for students.

Our work with Mwabu is breaking down barriers to education, empowering more teachers, and promoting key skills to young people.

330,000 Learners

In its first year, the project will reach 330,000 learners and 10,000 teachers in both Zambia and Sierra Leone.

Future plans to scale Mwabu involve replicating the project within additional rural locations within Africa.

10%+ Improvement

Early statistics from the project cite widespread improvements in the grades of pupils using Moodle Mobile.

Highlights include a 10% improvement in maths scores and a 12.4% improvement in oral vocabulary skills.

Gender equality

Mwabu is committed to equal access to education for all pupils and works closely with schools to ensure this.

Observations run by the charity to detect any discrimination in the use of tablets in the classroom have concluded that girls and boys alike have fair access.
