Low Cost/For Profit - Private Education in Africa

There has been a huge growth in Low-Cost Private Schools on the African Continent as well as in other developing countries. Social Entrepreneurs in Africa have used the Low-Cost Fee Model to bypass ineffective public education to provide a quality academic journey to a broader African population. As the founder of a network of low-cost private schools in Namibia, I've seen first-hand how this model has developed and the benefits low-cost/for-profit education has brought to communities.
