    About This Project

    An increasing number of African democracies are providing free primary education. But when it comes to secondary education, completion rates drop off dramatically. This project develops a mobile money system to pay secondary school fees in rural Benin. It lowers transaction costs, saves relatives time & money, and offers schools a fundraising tool to cover the poorest students' needs. As a result, more kids can afford to attend secondary school.
