EduTimes Africa, the education magazine with a difference is a dynamic and forward-thinking monthly publication committed to addressing the evolving educational challenges that Africa faces. Our mission is to bridge the educational gap on the continent by covering a wide spectrum of topics, ranging from early childhood education to tertiary education and even post-tertiary professional development. We endeavour to influence policy improvements and initiate reforms by providing practical solutions through interviews and articles written by expert contributors, often speaking to the United Nation’s recommended Sustainable Development Goals. Our ultimate objective is to foster positive change in African society by delivering actionable insights throughout the education sector.
Approaching education from a broad and inclusive perspective, we pay attention to different education pathways, with the recognition that each human being is endowed with his or her own unique talent, suggesting that the education required for each individual to realise his or her full potential and indeed to enjoy self actualisation will differ from person to person. It’s gladdening to see the African creative sector truly come of age in recent years and for the potential it holds to significantly drive socio-economic development, be finally recognised. With this and other career pathways in mind, our publication which made it its cardinal mission from inception to play a notable role in bringing down the horrendously high rate of unemployment and out of school children in Africa, very intentionally draws as much attention to Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) as it does to the more academic form of education. In this same vein, EduTimes Africa also makes it a point of duty to address the twin issues of women empowerment and education of the indigent, firmly aligning itself to the saying that the
measure of any society is gauged by the way the least of the society is treated by the rest.
Amongst the numerous and insightful titles within the publication, one particular segment which has come to be a flagship column of sorts, is the How Education Made Me column, where notable achievers in society, whether that be within the education space or without, are interviewed and given the opportunity to reveal how they became the success they are today, largely attributing it to their solid educational foundation. This column, amongst others, has become a veritable source of inspiration to many Africans. Through the various partnerships which EduTimes Africa has successfully established within its relatively short existence of just year, with some multilateral organisations, tertiary institutions, tech giants, pioneering EdTech companies, Global Education outfits, innovative entrepreneurial establishments, leading international youth focused organisations and even national sports organisations and entertainment titans, it can proudly say that it is succeeding in its mission to Inform, Educate and Inspire the African continent. But it is also wise enough to acknowledge that the real work has only just begun.
