Cassava Edutech has rolled out a new initiative to keep students productive during this lockdown, the online library is comprised of different school curriculum books so that it will support every education sector in Zimbabwe.
With schools having been shut for a while and with the understandable uncertainty over their opening due to health and safety concerns, we still want students to achieve good grades and to excel, regardless of the schools they attend or their financial circumstance.CEO of Cassava Smartech Zimbabwe: Eddie Chibi
