Necessity is the mother of invention.

This is true insofar as without Corona & Co. we would never have had the idea, let alone been able found something like the Mekaela Online Academy (MOA).

But we did, and almost exactly 25 years after the opening of our first school, MOA went online. The project was made possible by funding from DEG and a donation from Carl-August Seibel.

MOA is 100% powered by solar energy, including the 17 air-conditioners in the studios from which lessons are broadcast. Batteries provide power when it becomes too dark for solar, so broadcasting should never be interrupted for more than a few seconds.

We are using the learning platform “Shule Pepe” (Swahili for internet school), which we developed ourselves. Maybe this is the future of learning, whether we like it or not.

The picture on the left shows the inner court of MOA, where the teachers spend their breaks.
