Welcome to Openkids Africa

OpenKids Africa is a non-profit organization. We believe that information and communication technology is the key to the strong and sustainable development of a country.

Therefore, we leverage open educational resources to provide quality information technology education and materials for kids and schools in rural communities in Africa.

What We Do

OpenKids Africa is a non-profit organization collaborating with government, schools, and industry to provide free, quality information technology education and resources for children in rural African communities.

  • Leadership

    We lead by advocating for the use and development of open educational resources for schools in underserved communities in Africa. This way, we can all work together to close the digital gap in our society.

  • Collaboration

    We are partnering with organizations to provide open educational resources for schools in underserved communities to aid in teaching and preparing children for a future career in technology.

  • Awareness

    We are promoting technology awareness for parents and guardians to help inspire and motivate children to consider a career in technology in the future.

  • Equality

    To address the digital imbalance in the ICT industry, we are promoting information technology skills for girls in Africa. We are collaborating with Tech She Can UK to improve the ratio and inspire more females to choose a career in technology.

  • Sustainability

    To enable us to conserve resources and avoid e-waste, we accept donations of refurbished laptops from our partner organizations for children and schools in underserved communities.

  • Education

    With free educational materials, we are educating, inspiring, and equipping African kids in underserved communities to take the lead in Africa's emerging digital economy.
