Lefa, a Sotho word meaning “Legacy” or “Inheritance,
Lefa is a cooperative focused on empowering communities with affordable access to online education and skills programs that will lead to meaningful participation in the Digital Economy.
The associated programs are 4IR centric and enabled by corporate partners to help:
- Bridge the digital divide
- Reduce the digital inequality gap
- Create income streams through shared value partnerships
Most of our township schools lack the ICT infrastructure, human resource capacity, skills and tools to provide education that can prepare our learners for the current 4th industrial revolution and the digital economy. However, we know that such educational programs and related content are freely available online. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of data and smart devices in our country most of our communities cannot afford access to such content that is freely available on the internet. All of this tragically means that most of our children will become even less employable or skilled enough to start their own businesses in this new digital economy.
