MARY-JANE MARK

CO-FOUNDER

I’m Mary-Jane Mark, co-founder of AfriEDX. I’m passionate about learning with my personal growth in view, and I reflect on new methods to help our youth in their learning career. The projects of AfriEDX focus precisely on finding new ways to give access to education to young learners so that they may embark on an educational path that will ensure their autonomy and social inclusion through gainful employment in their local community or elsewhere. I am convinced that new technologies have opened up hitherto unknown doors and opportunities that render access to education affordable anywhere. It would be irresponsible not to avail ourselves of the potential of new technologies.
