About Silverleaf Academy
Silverleaf believes that quality education should be accessible to every child. We know education helps level the playing field. We are attempting to build Tanzania’s first group of affordable primary schools, educating children aged 3-14.

Our mission is to provide lower-middle income urban families with the highest quality education possible at the most affordable price. Silverleaf schools deploy a tablet-based curriculum inside every classroom, and adopt an innovative team teaching and in-service training approach.

Our schools are designed to combat widespread student underperformance typically seen within highly resource constrained Tanzanian schools. It is our promise to our students and their parents that Silverleaf students will not leave without full mastery of the basic skills of writing, reading and counting, whilst also being prepared for a world where critical thinking, team collaboration, and entrepreneurship are paramount.

Silverleaf currently operates 2 campuses, in Zanzibar and Usa River, as well as supporting the launch of a new accelerator program for schools positioned to eventually support 10’s-100’s of existing primary schools.
