About Enko Education
Students from Sub-Saharan Africa are under-represented in the world’s best universities. In the US, a country hosting 900,000 foreign students, only 31,000 of them come from that region.
In contrast, 100,000 come from India, a country with the same population size and GDP per capita as Sub-Saharan Africa. This discrepancy stems from the inadequacy of traditional secondary school education on the continent and affordability of most international schools.
Enko Education aims to drastically enlarge the access to outstanding international secondary education in Africa, by building one of the largest networks of schools in the region.
We designed an international secondary-school model relying on international curriculum such as IB and Cambridge, significantly more affordable than any other international secondary-school.
