Project completed implementation in June 2021
iMlango (a word derived from the Swahili for doorway or portal) is a private sector-led project. It aimed to help 70,130 marginalised girls improve their learning and transition to the next stage of education, through the innovative use of technology.
The project provided schools with satellite broadband and computer labs which allowed students to use an online portal for tutoring in maths and literacy. The project generated real-time data on student attendance and also on their learning progress, so the teaching content could be tailored to each individual child. It also provided a loan scheme for parents as part of the project's microfinance initiative, working with mothers in the communities.
