Education in Africa Audio


Education is important to the growth and development of healthy and vibrant communities. Different levels of education face different challenges and while most people think of education in a formal setting, education is all encompassing and learning is a life long process. 

On this page you can read interviews and listen to excerpts from programs the Africa Grantmakers' Affinity Group has organized to explore the various approaches and strategies used to improve education quality and access for communities in Africa.

Listen to the audio from the three part series on "The Nexus of Information and Education"  that explores formal and nonformal education and the important role of information technology in learning.

Listen to the interview with the Coordinator of the Partnership for Higher Education in Africa, a multi-foundation, multi-year partnership to support university education in selected African countries.
