About Bridge International

Bridge International Academies was conceived in 2007 out of the belief that giving every child access to a high quality education would have the greatest impact on reducing poverty worldwide. 
With that guiding insight, Bridge International developed a strategy that would enable it to launch a large-scale network of high-quality, ultra low-cost, for-profit primary schools. 
Operating a network of schools supported by a strong central headquarters gives Bridge International the scale, experience, and capacity to invest in systems of management, support, training, and innovation that allows individual schools to dramatically increase their effectiveness. 
Using this model, Bridge International is able to profitably deliver high-quality education for $5 per child per month. 
This ensures that its academies will continue to successfully serve its communities as long as parents value the educational service provided. 
The first Bridge International Academy launched successfully in Kenya in 2009 and over 70 academies are operating in Kenya today. 
Through rapid and strategic expansion, Bridge International will provide a quality education to over a million students in the coming years.
