Zambia is one of the poorest countries in the world (HDI 141/187). The educational system is providing neither the access to nor the quality of education that its citizens demand. While primary school enrolment is high, education quality is low, and literacy rates among young adults fall under regional averages. School completion continues to be a major challenge — just 56% of students in Zambia progress to secondary school (The World Bank, 2013).
Founded in 2009, Impact Network (http://www.impactnetwork.org/) is a non-profit organization providing high-quality education solutions through e-Learning. The Impact Network system, the eSchool 360, integrates a standardized and interactive e-Learning curriculum in partnership with local communities. In 2017, Impact Network brought the eSchool 360 to 35 new schools accompanied by a rigorous evaluation.
