Akros in Education


Education Management Information Systems

Akros worked with Zambia’s Ministry of General Education and UNICEF to pilot the country’s first DHIS2-based mobile-to-web data collection platform to monitor routine school indicators. With a timely and responsive monitoring platform, teachers would be able to better meet student needs, and administrators would be better able to assist teachers.


School-Led Total Sanitation

Sanitation practices like hand-washing and use of a latrine are essential to keep children healthy. Poor sanitation may result in increased incidence of disease which can lead to poor school attendance and performance. Schools are a good entry point to teach the importance of these practices in order that they stay healthy and ready to learn.
