At TEDxStellenbosch 2012, Kenyan entrepreneur Nivi Mukherjee points out Africa's education shortfalls and presents a solution. She shares the story that led her to the development of eLimu, an interactive and fun application for children in the Kenyan Primary School system.

As a social entrepreneur, technophile and community volunteer, Nivi is passionate about empowering youth and engaging in community initiatives that foster development and fun. She runs Maisha ni Matamu, a "funucational" social project that aims to bring a day full of joy every month to children who are underprivileged and/or orphaned.

About TEDx:

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
