Africa: T4 Education Partners With HP and Intel to Rewards African Teachers


Nairobi — T4 Education has partnered with HP and Intel to reward African Teachers in the inaugural Africa Education Medal.

The medal seeks to recognise the tireless work of those who are transforming education across the continent – to celebrate the stories of those who have lit the spark of change so others will be inspired to take up the torch.

“Quality education will help African countries grow and prosper. And it will help Africa produce the public leaders of tomorrow who will go on to grapple with the continent’s greatest challenges from inequality, to climate change, food insecurity and disease. The Africa Education Medal recognises those who are working every day to make that vision a reality,” said Vikas Pota, Founder and CEO of T4 Education.

John Kimotho, Senior Deputy Director at Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development, has joined the Judging Academy.

“In Kenya, and all across Africa, we need to see everyone from both the public and private sectors working together to ensure we are able to provide a quality education to every child. I urge inspirational leaders from Kenya and all over our continent to come forward and apply for the Africa Education Medal so others can learn from their shining examples,” Kimotho noted.

The Medal is open to individuals working to improve pre-kindergarten, K-12, vocational and university education as educators and school administrators, civil society leaders, public servants and government officials, political leaders as well as Technologists and innovators.

“HP has been committed to enabling better learning outcomes for 100 million people between 2015-2025. Achieving this bold goal wouldn’t be possible without empowered education leaders and trailblazers who are at the forefront of the rapidly changing education environment,” said Brad Pulford, Managing Director at HP Africa.
