Measuring Impact: Strengthening Local Education Capacity

Teacher Productivity

92% of teachers report increased productivity due to improved technology skills, allowing them more time to focus on student learning.

Learner Engagement

In just one year, the number of STEM student exhibitions grew 40% at Gashora Girls Academy of Science and Technology.

Learner Growth

72% of LEAP Science and Maths Schools students now attend university, compared to less than 5% of black South African students nationally.

Sustainability & Scale

Team4Tech partnered with CARE to integrate technology into rural schools in Cambodia. The Ministry of Education plans to scale the program across all Cambodian schools by 2025.

Building Nonprofit Capacity

Kidspire works to improve opportunities for children in government orphanages in Vietnam through after-school technology and leadership programs. Since 2014, Team4Tech has helped Kidspire build capacity through technology grants and workshops. As a result, Kidspire students are now staying in school longer, attending university and getting better jobs.

Impact

Building STEM Skills for a Better Future

LEAP Science and Maths Schools provide a high quality education for underserved secondary students in the townships of South Africa.  Since 2014, Team4Tech has supported LEAP teachers and students in advancing their STEM skills from digital literacy to coding.  Students from LEAP recently entered and won 3rd place in a robotics competition.

Empowering Girls

Since 2017, Team4Tech has partnered with Gashora Girls Academy of Science and Technology, a STEM-focused secondary school in Rwanda that serves a socioeconomically diverse population of girls. After attending a Team4Tech coding workshop and hearing of a classmate’s police bribery incident, three girls used technology skills to fight back by creating and patenting an Anti Korruption App.
