Tonee Ndungu is one of my most "woke" friends. He actually challenges some of the social structures I have grown up to believe are true. 

In this episode Tonee does just that, he looks at how the Covid 19 isolation period is revealing to us about ourselves and our relationships.

Paying for textbooks by the page: how Kytabu is disrupting Kenyan education, with Tonee Ndungu

Play

The main way that students learn how to pass an exam is by reading from a textbook.

Traditionally, this has been built on the premise of publishers printing physical copies,
distributing to schools and taking cash payments.

This all comes at a cost, which is prohibitively high for a lot of schoolchildren in East Africa.

Tonee and I spend this episode discussing Kytabu.

They’ve turned the model on its head by digitising the content of these publishers, and allowing students and teachers
to access what they want, when they want it,
renting chapters from a book at a few US cents per day, paid for with mobile money

We also discuss how a lot of Kytabu’s employees are still at university, other trends that Tonee sees in the East African EdTech space and how a different interpretation of doughnut can completely undermine attempts from abroad to distribute educational content

It’s a great example of using scalable technology to disrupt an industry, and so I hope you enjoy
