Maths Challenges

The majority of children are struggling to pass maths. In South Africa, only 14% of students who enroll in school manage to pass Grade 12 mathematics with a mastery level of 30% or higher.

Maths support options are currently not widely accessible to the mass market in Southern Africa.

Alternative services are expensive
Tutoring can be financially out of reach, even for households with stable incomes.

Free content is not curated
While there is a plethora of free educational content available, many households struggle to locate suitable resources and tailor them to their children’s specific needs.

Students lack confidence
Students often feel uncertain about their ability to succeed in math. This lack of confidence can result in disengagement and a sense of hopelessness regarding their math proficiency.

Unreliable internet and expensive data
