Our impact mission
At Makosi, we imagine a world which everyone has the opportunity to pursue a high quality education. That is why we set out to put 10,000 kids through school.
Research Report 1
In preparation for the 10,000 Kids project, this report includes a detailed review of the scale of, and potential reasons for, systematic issues within education in developing countries. Report 1 is followed by Report 2 which explores the potential of investing in different stages of education to build an understanding of where the 10,000 Kids project should be positioned.Read More
Research Report 2
Report 2 explores the potential benefits of investing in different stages of education, and preliminary conclusions are drawn as to which investment stage will have the greatest impact. Understanding this has provided the foundation to shape the 10,000 Kids project, which will be outlined in-depth in Report 3.
Makosi Academy (Pilot Project)
Makosi Academy seeks to transform the lives of children living in underdeveloped communities of the world by providing them with access to high-quality education and on-going support from the beginning of their educational journeys until their tertiary graduation.
To kickstart the project, we launched a pilot in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, enrolling 11 learners and providing them with access to a cutting-edge curriculum and a variety of innovative digital experiences. We are currently collating all the data and insights gained from the project and integrating them into our overarching strategy of sending 10,000 kids to school.
There’s still a lot of work to be done- but we look forward to continuing to share that journey with you!
Education is a privilege not afforded to everyone. Education inequality is by far one of the most challenging problems in this world, and one that has a multifaceted impact on society and individuals alike. For every child that does not obtain a good quality education, society suffers in a number of ways, most notably, increasing crime, poverty, unemployment, etc.
Improve lives, meaningfully and sustainably.
Sustainable impact to us means aligning a series of actions that result in the betterment of others for a prolonged period irrespective of our physical presence or existence.

Magical moments with the kids
The unforgettable moments of 2022 touched many hearts and brought smiles all around.
How we plan to meet our goals
We have an entire team dedicated to getting this initiative off the ground. As with any new adventure, the learning curve will be steep, and we look forward to identifying our wins and misses and sharing those insights transparently.
It is said, that if you want to go quickly, go alone. But if you want to go far, go together.
Thus, we have begun the process internally to identify the right partners to work with on the ground in each country. Our goal is to create cohesion in the provision of resources and the development of existing structures in a non-disruptive manner to community ecosystems. We also feel that it is extremely important that our clients and consultants walk this journey with us.
