The education systems of a 21st-century Africa needs engaging and authentic experiences that will drive successful learning to fuel the realization of the Africa we want. Virtual Reality can provide this and offers immense potential to expose our learners to peoples and worlds that are normally inaccessible or extremely hard to reach.

Virtual Reality, a technology by which computer-aided stimuli create the immersive experience of being somewhere else through special headsets and usually involve visual feedback from body movement, is one such technology that could usher every learner everywhere into the experience age. Virtual Reality promises to provide more immersive and engaging experiences with exciting potential for impact in education and training.

VirtualSasa delivers immersive and experiential learning opportunities to Ugandan schools, including those with limited financial resources to organize field trips for their learners. VirtualSasa removes the learner out of the four walls of the classroom and places them into the unlimited possibilities of any learning environment they can dare to imagine, bringing their creativity, passion, and potential to full life. VirtualSasa substantially cuts the cost of these trips by over 80% yet offers a limitless learning experience that is fully immersive.

With your support, we will be able to consolidate our partnership with Avantis Education giving access to the world's largest VR for Education platform, ClassVR, to many schools in Uganda. We will also be able to set up a VR content development studio to curate curriculum aligned VR content that teachers across Uganda can use to improve learning outcomes in their classrooms.

Our future generations are counting on us to deliver a 21st-century education that best prepares them to tackle the challenges of their present and future. We are counting on you to make it happen. #VirtualSasa #Maarifasasa #QualityEducation4All #SDG4
