Tell us about yourself and AfriEDX?
AfriEDX was born following a grant from the American Embassy in 2017. AfriEDX is a private company whose objective is to leverage immersive technologies such as Virtual Reality for pedagogical purposes in the formal education sector. I am the director of the company.
What are the education challenges identified by AfriEDX?
According to the UNESCO report, one in five children, adolescents and youth is a school drop-out. A great number of children have serious learning difficulties using traditional school textbooks and methods. Some students do not have the opportunity to see the world in order to expand their knowledge for many reasons, especially those living in remote rural areas. Another major challenge remains the non-availability of up-to-date contents for a particular curriculum. Technology is evolving fast, it is hard for schools to keep up with the latest techniques and tools.
What are you doing to solve this problem?
We organise awareness workshops and training in order to bring together more people involved in the productions of VR contents. Read the rest of this entry »

Education and technology can play an important role in ending hunger and malnutrition in Africa once and for all.
That is the view of leading experts in communications technology and food security, who will be attending a special session on malnutrition at this year’s eLearning Africa conference in Kigali, Rwanda from 26 – 28 September.
Current estimates show that around 14.5 per cent of people living in Africa’s poorest regions are hungry or malnourished. The most obvious victims are often children and, according to the World Health Organisation, hunger and malnutrition are still the biggest causes of child mortality in developing countries.

One of Africa’s most inspirational and successful women will top the bill at this year’s eLearning Africa conference in Kigali, Rwanda.
A medical doctor, an academic and a businesswoman, Dr Mamphela Ramphele is also the former leader of South Africa’s Agang SA political party and a founder, with her former partner Steve Biko, of the Black Consciousness movement. She heads an exciting list of keynote speakers in a fascinating programme of discussions, workshops and debates under the overall theme of ‘Uniting Africa.’
Conference organiser Rebecca Stromeyer, says:
“Africa is in a much stronger position today than it was a decade ago but, in many ways, it is still divided”. “If it can unite, it can win the prize of longterm, sustainable growth. Technology is opening up huge new opportunities. The African Union has set out a plan for the transformation of the whole continent. Technology and education are at the heart of it. Breaking down barriers to trade, investment and growth is also crucial. So the theme of this year’s conference – Uniting Africa – is really all about how we can bring Africans closer together to share knowledge and gain the skills to make the most of all the future has to offer this great continent.

Could you introduce yourself and how did you start in the B industry?
I am Suyash Sumaroo, the founder of Codevigor – a Mauritius startup specialised in the development of mobile, web and blockchain apps. I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Mauritius and my Postgraduate at the University of Greenwich. Following this, I worked for about 8 years as software developer and project manager in various projects. I started working on Blockchain some 2 years ago. At that time, I was looking for a solution to a very specific problem concerning an online service that I was launching. I stumbled on Blockchain and what it claimed to offer. After studying the concepts behind this technology, I became more and more interested, especially with the distributed ledger technology and the trustless environment that it offered. This new technology was aiming to revolutionise many industries and I wanted to be part of it. Read the rest of this entry »
