Mwabu has partnered with Jhpiego, a US-based NGO affiliated with Johns Hopkins University, under a US Center for Disease Control (CDC) and US Presidents Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)-funded project to build the capacity of frontline health care workers to deliver quality HIV/AIDS services in Zambia.
This is a five year project, building learning content on the new guidelines in each learning area, for the delivery of training to health care professionals who are either trained, untrained or retraining. Example topics include: HIV/Aids, Male Circumcision, TB, Mother to Child and counselling.
Educational content around water and sanitation health (WASH) commissioned by The German Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources. We created an e-comic using their existing paper comic books, and developed one of their stories into interactive content.
"Our collaboration with the team was very fruitful because they really put a lot of effort into understanding our organization and its interests. In the schools we evaluated, we saw evidence that the e-comic and lesson content on the tablets resulted in improved knowledge of water and water-wise behaviour issues." Adjoa
Game Rangers International
Promoting the conservation work of Game Rangers International, a Zambian conservation organization that works alongside the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) to protect wildlife in Zambia. We delivered conservation content focused on human-elephant conflict, bushmeat and poaching.
As part of the program, a community school was provided with Mwabu tablets containing 5000 lesson plans and 2000 interactive lessons in 8 languages

"Mwabu have been great to work with! They take our educational formats and make them into a creative, fun and engaging activity. We think that our conservation app will be the most innovative tool seen in environmental education in Zambia so far!" Sarah
Learning resources built for Clinical Health Assistants focussing on maternal health, particularly the area that had the highest death toll; post-partum haemorrhaging. Includes learning content, case studies and a decision tree.
This project was envisioned as the beginning of a long term goal of building a comprehensive medical learning library. There is the potential for different partner organisations to build the sections of the medical learning library that are important to them, combining to build up a useful bank of teaching and learning resources.
A collection of farming information, in English and local languages, to help farmers know more about the crops and animals that they are rearing.
Easy to understand information to help parents in rural villages to understand more about basic health and hygiene, nutrition, and disease prevention.
Initially doctors were commissioned to write content for this series, but it was discovered that the information was not accessible enough to those outside the profession! By collaborating more widely, content was developed for a Nutrition Game and a Disease Education and Prevention Series, including Diarrhoea, Pneumonia, Malaria and Tuberculosis.
