Safaricom has partnered with Zeraki Learning to enable secondary school learners to access affordable education services from well-trained teachers and informative video lessons.
This digital platform seeks to provide topic-by-topic assessments and powerful metrics to help students diagnose their weaknesses and track their progress.
“Our investments in education, both from a solution and philanthropic perspective, are geared towards addressing current gaps and boosting youth employability. Through the partnership with Zeraki Learning, we want to ensure that the platform makes digital education accessible and affordable. For parents, Zeraki gives them access to their child’s academic record which they can use to support their decisions”, said Peter Ndegwa, CEO, Safaricom.
Safaricom has added a touchpoint within MySafaricom App which will enable parents and guardians to subscribe to the service for as low as KES 20 a day. The amount can be deducted from customers’ airtime/postpaid bills or via M-PESA
“We are glad to be able to extend our services to Safaricom customers in a bid to make learning accessible to students from all backgrounds. By leveraging Safaricom’s technology and platform and pairing it with our services, we will provide a solution that we hope will have a positive impact in Kenya,” said Isaac Nyangolo, CEO, Zeraki Learning.
Zeraki analytics offers the latest system of compiling and analyzing students’ data by providing an interface for results analysis, marks entry, and bulk messaging to parents. For the teachers, Zeraki analytics results give them a new and easy way to analyze and visualize exam results.
The platform is available in the education section of the MySafaricom App under the discover tab and on www.safaricom.com/elimu
