Solving Africa's Teacher Shortage: The Youth-Led Answer

In Sub-Saharan Africa, local governments and NGOs alike have invested millions in developing solutions to increase access to quality education for Africa's young people--the majority of whom attend overcrowded, understaffed schools. But what if the tools to solve Africa's education challenge already exist?  In this recorded webinar, Peggy Mativo, founder of PACE, explains how Africa's youth may be its greatest asset in transforming the education sector for the next generation. Peggy provides insight into how her venture has already achieved measurable results in Kenyan schools, and shares her vision for replicating PACE's innovative youth-driven model across Africa.
