Founded in 2015, EDRO is a Social Enterprise that aims to create and implement structured programmes in the realm of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects through the medium of robotics that are relevant to the African context.
Computer Science is one area which is ripe for innovation. There is currently an insatiable, growing, worldwide demand for programmers and other digitally competent individuals. This is one way we can help address South Africa’s desperate need for job creation and economic growth.
The vision of EDRO Elevate:
- Working with committed partners to enact social impact
- Reaching South Africa’s low income communities
- Paving Africa’s entrance to the digital economy
- Locally minded; globally informed
But EDRO cannot do this alone - we need partners and like-minded people to make the impact where it is needed most in order to provide access to knowledge and develop skills to change local communities through EDRO Elevate.
EDRO Elevate is currently active in a local school in Cape Town. This was made possible through our partnership with the Bandwitch Barn. We are running a yearlong program with the Grade 7 class. We have also partnered with various companies like ABSA to introduce girls to the world of coding
