About e-School Box
Who We Are
The e-School box is an e-learning platform established in 2022 to tutor prospective candidates of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
Why Choose e-School Box?
An Africa where every child has an equal opportunity to receive quality education irrespective of where they stay, what school they attend, or how wealthy they are.
To bring quality education to the doorstep of every student, particularly aspiring candidates of WASSCE and UTME, to give them the best lessons from the best minds and at the best time.
Meet our Co-founders
Samuel Ubido is a Cybersecurity professional and a self-motivated individual dedicated to impacting people and communities. He has an academic background in Electrical Engineering from Loughborough University and an MSc. in Software and System Security from the University of Oxford. For Sam, having a tech background is an opportunity for him to take hold of societal issues and develop lasting solutions. According to Sam, “I am driven by a desire to give back, and that is why I co-established the e-School box. Education is one of my priorities in life. I believe everyone can thrive if they receive a sound education, and I want to do my best to give every African that opportunity to learn.”

About the e-School Box: Product
The e-school box is a mobile local Wi-Fi system that deploys e-learning courses without internet and electricity, within a range of over 200 meters radius. It is portable and mobile, so it can be set up anywhere, even where the use of telephone and internet is usually impossible.
Since internet penetration, electricity, and the cost of internet data can pose a problem in remote areas of West Africa or among people within the low-income bracket, the product ensures that students in these groups or regions are not left out of a broad scope of learning. With the box, they can still access all our subjects and lessons without using the internet, data, or even electricity.
Preloaded courses for secondary schools, universities and corporate organisations
A battery-operated system with a solar charger
Operates with or without an electricity connection.
