Safaricom has partnered with Zeraki Learning to enable secondary school learners access affordable education services from well trained teachers and informative video lessons.
The digital platform seeks to provide topic-by-topic assessments and powerful metrics to help students diagnose their weaknesses and track their progress.
“Our investments in education, both from a solutions and philanthropic perspective, are geared towards addressing current gaps and boost youth employability. Through the partnership with Zeraki Learning we want to ensure that the platform makes digital education accessible and affordable. For parents, Zeraki gives them access to their child’s academic record which they can use to support their decisions”, said Peter Ndegwa, CEO, Safaricom.

The app will enable secondary school students access affordable education services from well trained teachers for as low as Kshs 20. The app is available on MySafaricom App.
Safaricom has added a touchpoint within MySafaricom App which will enable parents and guardians to subscribe for the service for as low as Kshs 20 a day. The amount can be deducted from customers’ airtime/postpaid bill or via M-PESA.
“We are glad to be able to extend our services to Safaricom customers in a bid to make learning accessible to students from all backgrounds. By leveraging on Safaricom’s technology and platform and pairing it with our services, we will provide a solution that we hope will have a positive impact in Kenya,” said Isaac Nyangolo, CEO, Zeraki Learning.
