The content is engaging, and we know it’s going to add value to our education system,” said Roith Rajpal, Managing Director, 2enable.

2Enable is a free online education community empowering teachers and learners. The organization is committed to the delivery of quality educational resources that inspire everyday teaching and learning. 2Enable provides easy-to-access, peer-reviewed, good quality, curriculum-aligned basic education content to all South Africans for free.

Some of their products include text-to-speech software. 

“It is partners like 2Enable that make it possible for us to collectively achieve our mission to fundamentally improve learning for children in low- and lower-middle-income countries across the world. We are thrilled to be taking this journey together,” said Mubuso Zamchiya, Managing Director, Age of Learning Foundation.
