empowermefirst.college is a non-profit aiming to make upper secondary school education accessible to millions of youths in emerging and developing countries. We offer a free online learning platform to overcome gaps created by inequality. Students learn at their own pace, using their mobile phones everywhere, at any time. They receive regular coaching with quizzes, semester assignments and from their tutors. Our focus is on STEM, entrepreneurship and ICT vocational training. Students also receive health, environmental sustainability and life skills education.
Since our creation in 2021, we have launched our program in two different countries, Uganda and Zimbabwe, by providing English and ICT courses. From September 2022 we will offer maths, sciences, entrepreneurship and life skills to a number of students in Zimbabwe. But this is just the beginning, and we won’t rest until our vision is fulfilled. We are expanding our country's presence and the courses we offer.
