Founded in 2015, Tembo Education Group utilizes technology and infastructure to tackle the unmet need of the our times: early childhood education. We focus on children ages 0 to 6, an instrumental time that creates the building blocks of the rest of a person's life. The mission of Tembo Education Group is to deliver a global, scalable solution for two pressing problems of modern education: access and screen dependency.
We work to develop minds between the ages of 0 to 6 across the developed and developing worlds through the accessible delivery of early childhood education (or ECE). Early childhood is a crucial time for the development of a child and a parent. Harvard University research shows that 86-98% of a child’s vocabulary is derived from their parents. Vocabulary growth corresponds with higher test scores, mental processing speed and language learning abilities. Additionally, studies have found that every dollar invested in ECE results in a return on investment of $7-$13. We want the hundreds of millions of children ages 0 to 6 in the developing world to reach their full cognitive potential.
We partner with NGOs, telecoms, and other companies to deliver our learning platform globally and reach markets where quality, curriculum-based early childhood learning is often financially and geographically inaccessible. In the developing world, we leverage these relationships to create incentives for learning, such as free data and airtime.
We have worked with several leading organizations on pilot studies with our text-based learning platform. Additionally, we offer bespoke learning solutions for older children and adult learning contexts. If you would like to learn more, please contact us.
