Support Education (SupEd ) is dedicated to supporting Education through digital technology, and achieve equity, equality, and inclusive education for all students in developing countries. Our solution delivers, online, offline and integrated approach to address all schools, where there is an internet connection or no internet at all.
According to UNSCO report, more than 60%of youth between the age of 15 to 17 are out of school, and disparity in access to quality of education based on gender, economic status, ethnicity, and disability is prevalent in all countries in the region. Hence our organization strives to address this gap and focus on reaching the rural and marginalized regions, with integrated online/offline solutions and affordable digital devices to ensure equal access to quality education. We also work with development partners and organizations to escalate the issue and find solutions to increase the quality of education and accessibility to resources.
Our integrated solution has been piloted in Ethiopia in two regions Called Amhara and Oromia, schools (Chacha, and Burayou General high school and preparatory ). in collaboration with SparkmanCenter for Global Health of University of Alabama at Birmingham. We deployed a digital library server, with in-campus wireless intranet for access to the digital resources, and a tablet to every student and teacher.
The impact analysis of this implementation was magnificent in different measurements. Following this output, the Ethiopia ministry of education has endorsed the solution and wrote a letter to all regional bureaus and development partners to upscale the solution and implement it in schools of the country.
In response to COVID19, and helping students to stay at home, we developed the application to be download from the google app store, and access all the curriculum resources and video tutorials, for free. This help students that have access to the internet and digital devices such as laptop, tablet, and smartphone. To address those students where there is no internet access, and have problems with digital devices, we loaded tablets with grade curriculum content and make them available at affordable price.
