There exists today a digital divide, as lower-income countries fall behind in their capacity to support blended learning and, importantly in the context of COVID-19, remote learning options. As of 2020, less than 30% of Sub-Saharan African countries were using ICT in schools. According to the Brookings Institute, this disparity has been even more pronounced during COVID lockdowns, where unlike in high income countries where students could continue studies during lockdown through online means, only 11% of students in Sub-Saharan Africa had access to any form of online or blended learning. DRC ranks 145 of 187 countries in access to the internet. As governments in the region are increasingly looking for technological solutions, affordable platforms, such as Tusitawi, are an important part in achieving access to education for all.
