Aikan HR Consultants seeks to

to the poorest of the poor, democratizing the right to succeed.
Bridge leverages research, technology,
and data analysis in order to standardize and scale the entire lifecycle of
high-quality education delivery and to drive continuous improvement across all
aspects of operations.  This includes how
academies are built, teachers are selected and trained, lessons are delivered
and monitored for improvement, and more. Bridge pupils gain an additional .34
standard deviation on core reading skills and an additional .51 standard
deviation on maths compared to their peers in neighboring schools, based on USAID-designed
exams administered by an independent monitoring and Evaluation Company – this
translated into over 250 additional days of learning. Thanks to economies of
scale, Bridge is able to charge just $6 a month per pupil on average with
academies reaching operational sustainability after just one year.
