Digital Schoolhouse is partnering with Kucheza Gaming to expand its programme into Nigerian classrooms.
The UK-based non-profit organisation was started by UKIE with money from the Mayor of London's Schools of Excellence fund, to promote "games-centric" learning among British pupils and teachers.
Digital Schoolhouse now reaches 86,000 pupils in the UK, and this year it will expand into Africa through a partnership with the Nigerian esports firm, Kucheza Gaming.
Starting this month, the partnership will deliver computer science lessons to Nigerian students. Digital Schoolhouse will also partner with Kucheza on a game jam between schools in both countries.
Kucheza Gaming CEO Bukola Akingbade said that Nigeria has the world's youngest population, with an average age of 19.5 years-old.
"The widening gap between population growth and education deserves increased attention and resolution," Akingbade said in a statement. "We believe that this partnership with Digital Schoolhouse will allow us to reach more African children through esports and computing."
