Education is the most powerful weapon
which you can use to change the world.

Education is the kindling of a flame,
not the filling of a vessel.

Welcome to Innovation & Creativity

Education is the catalyst for innovation. As Africans in diaspora, we have experienced firsthand the progress and civic engagement that practical learning can bring to individuals and communities. We are a team of professional educators who work in high schools and colleges abroad, and our aim is to inundate fellow Africans with relevant information on their education and that of their children. We also hope that students who are deciding between various colleges or career paths may benefit from our experience.

Technology is changing the rules of employment across borders. Countries like Saudi Arabia, Britain and the United States have earmarked billions of dollars to attract people working in certain disciplines. The shortage of professionals in engineering, medicine, nursing, and mathematics is making countries cut the red tape that previously made it hard to cross national boundaries. The world has become a global village, and we would be remiss not to take advantage of the new economic order.

We hope to become a bridge between our continent and the Western world, offering teachers the latest information on pedagogical strategy and materials, and helping students become the best they can be in their chosen field of endeavor. We will also, to the best of our professional abilities, respond to questions from parents and students on our blog. We encourage our readers to post their comments on this site, as every contribution or question may relate to someone else’s.

Private questions can be sent directly to our e-mail address, and we will answer them promptly.

Helpful Scholarship Links to Study Abroad

According to Forbes, the total outstanding student loan in the U S $1.08 trillion, and a whopping 11.5% of it is 90+ days delinquent or in default.  It further states that the delinquency rate on student loans is higher than credit cards, mortgages and auto loans.  Although this is a bad news for students in western world, however, there are millions of students from African and third world nations who finance their education from out of pocket.  For those students, going to school is a game of chance and constant struggle to survive.  Whether you are in western world or African countries, there is alternative to student loan or paying out of pocket – it is called “Scholarship”.
