About Bridge International Academies Stock

Bridge partners with governments, communities, teachers, and families to deliver great schools and high-quality affordable education to underserved families and children. We believe every child has the right to a high-quality education and currently serve more than 100,000 pupils in more than 520 nursery and primary schools across Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Liberia, and India. At Bridge, we believe innovation and technology can transform learning. We develop world class lessons based on national curriculums, in-depth teacher training, and support programs and utilize cutting edge wireless technology. Our schools deliver increased learning gains for our pupils by being data driven and evidenced based. Our recent results showed that children get the equivalent of 64 more days of learning in a Bridge school when it comes to reading and 26 days of learning in Maths. We are committed to providing pupils with a meaningful and life-changing education that can enable them to fulfill their potential. We believe that all children should be able to go to great public schools but that sadly that’s not the case at the moment, so we help to bridge the gap. The schools we run are always accountable to government and we have several different models. In some countries, we run very low-cost schools, in others such as Liberia we run partnership schools with the government. High-performing low-cost schools demonstrate that public schools can also be high-performing. Bridge is proving that great education can be delivered sustainably, at scale and within the limited budgets of national economies. Our families chose Bridge because they have seen our results and the difference our schools make to their children and their future.
