Project Report | Aug 12, 2022

By Prince Makawa Abudu | Co-founder/COO Emergination Africa

The year 2022 has been a fruitful year for Emergination Africa, as we managed to train 263 educators across Zimbabwe in this post covid-19 environment. Of these 263 educators, 17% represented rural schools, which is an achievement we want to celebrate with you, our donors.

The Educator Venture Development training tackles educators’ key needs, helping them imbue a 21-century mindset and key skills that help improve pass rates. We have taken one key step to spread our impact across Africa by extending the Educator Venture Development Training to Kenya. We were able to train 31 educators, consisting of both teachers and school heads. The enthusiasm demonstrated by these educators gives us confidence of a budding future in Kenya. We were joined by representatives from the Kenyan Ministry of Education and they applauded the robustness of our training, especially its alignment to real world situations. The most exciting thing about Kenya is that their education system already has a vibrant idea generation platform.

After training in Zimbabwe, educators went back to their schools to equip learners in their different setups. These learners then came up with different business ventures that directly speak into the problems that their respective communities are facing.

Your donations allowed Emergination Africa to directly adopt 8 rural under privileged schools. This was a life changing opportunity for these learners as without this support offered, they could have never have had such a huge opportunity to pitch and get seed capital of $5000 as well as key entrepreneurial skills and a new mindset.

From 19 to 28 July Emergination African hosted its largest number of learners pitching yet in the National Business Case Competition 2022 edition with 88 schools pitching their ideas. We are proud to share that the impact we have been able to make is life changing and visible in these two weeks of Provincial Competitions!

To further empower our teacher-coaches, we have also introduced the Teach Coach of the year award, where we recognise exceptional teacher-coaches in their efforts to help learners reach their full potential. Though the main purpose of the National Business Case Competition is to identify, nurture, channel and develop future business leaders, we believe that it's important to also celebrate coaches who demonstrate the highest levels of professionalism and commitment.

We're happy to inform you that we were able to reach all 10 provinces of Zimbabwe, with 30 student teams of innovative and bright young entrepreneurial minds securing a spot in the upcoming NBCC National Finals!

The 30 finalists are now participating in Master Classes and judges’ comments as they perfect their ventures to become more than just school projects but sustainable and scalable ventures. This time before the National Finals in September is a chance to refine their ideas and prototypes.
