“Education opens up opportunities and changes lives for the better, we should utilize SDG4 as a conduit for real impact”, said Edzai Zvobwo at this year’s MathsGenius Leadership Institute’s year-end awards ceremony.
The MathsGenius Leadership Institute (MGLI) celebrated a successful year in the African education space. Many strides have been taken towards inclusive, quality education. MGLI launched its much-awaited MathsGee education platform on https://mathsgee.com
Zvobwo was extremely happy as he officially unveiled what he termed as MGLI’s plans to democratize quality education for all. The MathsGee program is as a result of hard work and lots of mistakes in trying to bridge the knowledge gap between employers and prospective employees.
MathsGee is an online content creation and recycling platform. It serves as a bank for educational content in the form of courses. MathsGee works with organizations in giving students (prospective employees) the work-readiness tools they need to thrive in the workplace thus improving employability and entrepreneurship.
Zvobwo believes that if organizations agree to open up their firewalls and share publicly consumable knowledge with all the students (prospective employees) then they will increase the talent pool and reduce onboarding time.
The idea of MathsGee is anchored on the Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4) as a vision in their endeavour to end poverty. To ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all, MathsGee encourages content developers on the platform to embed the following in their courses, whilst being sensitive to all races, geographies, age groups, genders and levels of education.
- Sustainable Lifestyles
- Cultural Diversity
- Human Rights
- Gender Equality
Education liberates the intellect, unlocks the imagination and is fundamental for self-respect. It is the key to prosperity and opens a world of opportunities, making it possible for each of us to contribute to a progressive, healthy society. Learning benefits every human being and should be available to all.
A key concept that was revealed in Zvobwo’s speech was the fact that we will only be as successful as we empower the weakest in society.
