Fatima’s venture, Cadi, focuses on creating an online platform that provides primary school teachers access to curated curricula along with lessons plans to help enhance the students learning experience.

Fatima was born in Guinea, a country with one of the lowest youth literacy rates in the world.  Throughout her primary school education, she experienced first-hand the inequalities that exist within the nation’s education sector and had to switch schools multiple times in search of institutions with better curricula.
