  • Do I need to take part in Open eLearning in order to apply for the Pre-Incubator program?

    No. You may apply directly to the Pre-Incubator program. However, we encourage you to register for Open eLearning as this will help prepare you for the Pre-Incubator application process.

  • Do I need to be located in sub-Saharan Africa to participate?

    This program is aiming to support teachers in sub-Saharan Africa. Participants will need to be on ground in order to develop and implement their ideas, so we ask that only practicing teachers who are currently living in sub-Saharan Africa register for the Challenge.
