A Tech Nonprofit
Seeking to Put IT in African Schools
We're a Virginia-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We are on a mission to power Africa with technology solutions to accelerate quality education for all, starting with Liberia, where we launched a pilot project of our integrated school management system. With co-funding support from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Weedor is now building a global edtech ecosystem – "The Weedor Universe" By Franco Carrizo, Weedor Project Architect.
Why Liberia First
The State of EducationThe Legatum Prosperity Index of 2021 indicates that Liberia ranks 139st in the world, with Education the lowest sector on the Spider Chart at 24.8%. A 0.3% decline from 2011.
Our Knowledge and ExperienceWeedor current team has over 30 combined years of work in the Liberian education system as teachers and administrators.
According to Population Reference Bureau, By 2030, young Africans are expected to constitute 42% of global youth. Yet, Africa has the poorest education system, the highest number of out-of-school children, the highest illiterate population, and with the highest population of children in school but not learning anything.
Imagine the implication for the rest of the world if the situation remains beyond 2030 with such a huge population.
To make a measurable difference in the lives of children who are in desperate need of help, whose future hangs in the balance, requires well-thought-out and intentional programs for intervention. Hence, Weedor has developed a three-core pillar strategy for program implementation.
