Working to improve the quality of public education in Africa.

Ducere Foundation is the social enterprise arm of Ducere Global Business School, with its head office located in Melbourne, Australia. For over 7 years we have been contributing to education in Africa through our African Children’s Stories program and through providing greater access to tertiary education for Africans through our online, world class, career-ready Bachelor and MBA degrees.

In line with the Sustainable Development Goal 4, Ducere Foundation is committed to advancing quality education across Africa through our training, publication, distribution of African-centric books and by offering affordable, online, world class degrees to the African market.
