African Education International was established in 2012
to invest in, and to operate, private schools across Sub-Saharan Africa.
Our belief that any country’s economic and social development hinges on the opportunities for young people to learn and to develop relevant skills was the motivation behind AEI’s formation.
African Education International was established in 2012 to invest in, and to operate, private schools across Sub-Saharan Africa. AEI brings together a team of experienced professionals led by Andrew Whittall, a Zimbabwean. The team has been on an extraordinary journey over a very short period of time: we have secured in excess of USD50m in funding with which we have built and now operate 6 schools and a teacher training academy in the North West of Zambia, and through our foundation, we currently support 50 government schools in this region. We are proud to be educating over 1,500 students across our schools, and impacting tens of thousands more through our teacher education and school improvement programmes. We employ more than 180 staff members. We have already made a tangible difference, but there is much more to do.
