Millennium Fellowship Project: Edunique Transformation
Edunique Transformation is an initiative aimed at redoing, rethinking and reimagining Kenya's education system by reducing inequalities therein. We define inequalities in 4 parts: student mentorship, teacher motivation, digital inclusivity and resource endowment. These 4 parts are acted upon using our 4 programs: Edunique Student Experience (ESE), Edunique Teacher Experience (ETE), Edunique Digital Experience (EDE), and Edunique Resource Fund (ERF) respectively. Edunique Transformation poses great opportunities for us to advance SDG 4 in the country through engagement of different stakeholders, research, and actions towards giving each learner a holistic learning experience.
