Enko Education is a fast-growing network of African international schools, increasing access to the world’s best universities for learners across Africa. It was founded by Eric Pignot and Cyrille Nkontchou in September 2013.
In May 2014, Enko Education recruited its first Head of School, Mr Bamidele Akinbo and in September 2014, Enko La Gaieté International School in Yaoundé, Cameroon, which is the first authorized IB World School in Cameroon and Central Africa was launched with 4 students. Subsequently, in January 2016, Enko Riverside International School in Maputo, Mozambique was also launched.
Since then, Enko Education has launched various schools in furtherance of improving quality education in Africa, they have established schools in Côte d’Ivoire, Cameroon, South Africa, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso and Mozambique and they all share a common goal: to provide their students with a launchpad to the world’s best universities.
Enko Education has developed an innovative model, their programs lead to globally recognized and sought-after qualifications. They are able to offer those at a fraction of the cost charged by other international schools in Africa.
Furthermore, Enko learners are supported in their higher education applications through our university guidance program. It supports them in selecting the right universities and then securing both admission and financing for their studies.
They offer an outstanding learning experience striving to educate their learners with Africa at heart and the world in mind.
Enko Education’s model is showing impressive results with learners joining top universities like Yale University (USA), Sciences Po (Fr), the University of Toronto (Canada), African Leadership University (Rwanda) and many more.
With 13 schools across Africa, Enko Education aims to open 30 more schools in at least 20 African countries over the next five years. Several international financing institutions, including Proparco, I & P, Oiko Credit and LiquidAfrica, support Enko Education’s ambition.
