About the company

Virtual Essence leverages digital technology to revolutionize learning experiences by creating engaging, exciting, relevant content and platforms to personalize every child's learning experience. Virtual Essence provides interactive digital content that is government-curated and aligned with the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) for primary schools in Kenya.

African education is still plagued with the challenges of inequality in the access to quality education. These challenges encompass limited infrastructure in remote and underprivileged regions, hindering students' ability to attend schools and access adequate learning resources. Socio-economic disparities, including poverty and gender discrimination, result in unequal opportunities for education, with girls and children from marginalized communities facing the brunt of the inequity. Virtual Essence is designed to foster seamless delivery of high quality, affordable digital learning content to every child in Kenya whether online or offline.
