South African edtech company Snapplify has launched Teacha!, a resourceful marketplace where teachers can buy and sell their teaching resources.
The digital education firm has cut a niche in its space by providing digital tools for learners and teachers alike.
The company was founded in 2011 and has its headquarters in Cape Town, South Africa. It has recorded significant growth over the years, characterized by expansion across the continent and globally.
Snapplify Kenya started operations in 2016 and has managed to bring on board several East African schools and individual teachers.
Speaking during the launch of Teacha!, Lilian Nyaranga said, “There is a great need for CBC resources in Kenya at the moment and this is an enormous opportunity – not only for Kenya’s teachers to sell resources they’ve already created and earn extra income but also for thousands of teachers to find the curriculum-aligned resources they need.”
Some of the resources on Teacha! Include worksheets, presentations, interactive lessons, assessments, summaries, flashcards, posters, clip art, book covers, planners and more. Most of these resources are also available for free, for teachers to download and use.
Company founder Jean Vermeulen said, “Teacha! is already the home of the largest community of teachers in Africa and we’re thrilled to be supporting more Kenyan teachers with key teaching resources.”\
In 2019, Snapplify raised US$2 million in funding to accelerate its international expansion initiatives and advance its data analytics capabilities.
