A School in a Box is all you need to provide academic support and extra lessons for up to 100 children, from age 5 to 18 (Grade 1 to Matric in South Africa), in English, maths, science and computer coding. A School in a Box can be used without charging learners, or a small fee can be charged to cover the costs of a facilitator.

The education crisis in South Africa, where the School in a Box was birthed, shows little sign of abating:

  • Over 50% of young adults are unemployed and largely unemployable due to a lack of basic skills
  • Our maths and science education continually rate in the bottom 5% of all education systems worldwide.
  • Almost 60% of learners who start Grade 1 don’t make matric.


As Johann Rupert said, we are creating “a new generation of slavery”
