We are a Social Business. That means that we work to address a social issue, in this case, education. We are financially self-sustainable, and any profits are reinvested in the social focus. The purpose of profit is to advance the process of giving back to the community.
School in a Box is focused on whole-person development and can help learners to achieve their full potential. With the exception of the SiB SOLO, each kit includes either a Raspberry Pi or a mini-server, which means that all lessons and most apps can be accessed offline.
School in a Box is registered in South Africa as a Public Benefit Organisation which allows us to issue Section 18a tax certificates for donations of cash or in kind.
We believe that every learner deserves the opportunity for quality education – Our aim is to get a School in a Box system in the hands of as many teachers and after-school facilities as possible.
School in a Box is a self-paced educational resource that allows facilitators to teach students from any grade (Grade R to Grade 12) as students are coached to achieve mastery in every subject through the School in a Box program. Our Kindergarten to Grade 3 lessons are full-school ready, by meeting the South African national government regulations for CAPS curriculum.
Education is a critical aspect of child development. In some of the most difficult areas of the world, we are seeing the education systems fall apart. More and more people are dissatisfied with education in local schools, with the erosion of morals and values. School in a Box will become a viable alternative.
We believe in whole-person development – With the addition of a Christian Curriculum, we can focus on more than just education. This optional track will help to develop both children and teens to have moral values and a foundational worldview.
Various training options are available for new users of the School in a Box system. We aim to keep the training fee to a minimum. Training videos are also available for those who need a refresher or help training new team members.
We will charge a nominal license fee per tablet to enable remote support and continued development requirements. Depending on the volume this can be adjusted as the intent of this is for sustainability, rather than profit.
