African Roots

At Enko Education, we strive to nurture our learners, encouraging them to embrace and appreciate their African roots while fostering a strong sense of identity. We empower our students to seize the boundless opportunities available on the continent, while also equipping them to become the continent’s representatives and promoters globally. By instilling a sense of pride in their culture, we aim for our students to make a positive difference in Africa and beyond.

The Founders’ Speaker Series gives our students inspiration and motivation through aspirational African personalities.
    5. Our students get to enjoy the benefits of being part of a network of schools: we organize events and interaction across our schools such as summer school trips. For example, in 2023 students from various Enko education schools had the opportunity to travel to Rwanda.
