Africa's Education News Source

About Us

Belief Statement

Education in Africa is not a priority even though you hear all the speeches of the government. At Edugist, we believe that good journalism can be at the heart of education and that the media can educate rather than sedate the populace.

Access to a quality education is an important right of all children. Edugist believes that an informed, involved public is necessary to strengthen the education in Africa because it holds the magic wang for the development of the continent.
