We are looking at ow we can be able to provide quality, affordable and accessible education solutions in the country. Though it has existed for over five years now, but on a low scale. There are lots of advantages in this solution considering the impact that we want to make in the educational ecosystem. Our solution impressed the AfDB last year during the “African versus Virus” program. “

“Acadasuite has branches such as school management software where school can manage their daily activities, then we integrated an e-Learning solution where students can learn remotely and teachers upload their content and can be seen via live feed.

This Acadasuite content makes it possible to access contents without hiccups and can be bundled in a device for those in remote areas “. Enyika added.
