Canadian Engineers Without Borders backs edtech venture M-Shule



Engineers Without Borders Canada seeded Kenyan startup M-Shule with a $40,000 cash investment.

The startup is piloting 400 mini-lessons in 15 schools in Nairobi. Engineers Without Borders is backing M-Shule to address gaps education systems in sub-Saharan Africa, where one billion children will require an education over the next 30 years.

M-Shule is Engineers Without Borders’ eighth investment via its seed fund, which commits up to $100,000 in social enterprises in Africa.
