Overview

AlumnusOnline is a free online networking platform intended to facilitate and coordinate the active participation of the greater public in schools they once attended
as students and where, utilizing their existing ecosystem of networks, connections, expertise and resources, the alumni are able to give back to these institutions that
made them so that the current cohort of learners, teachers, school managers and the governing bodies in existence back there are maximally supported and assisted to
perform at optimum levels.

The platform also accommodates other interested individuals and corporates (non alumni) by encouraging them to support any schools of their choice as Friends of Schools. It also provides wide ranging online features to promote engagements between and among alumni and schools so that the alumni (and Friends of Schools) play a meaningful role at their schools.

To that extent, our online platform offers a holistic, nuanced and comprehensive education solution that takes on board the entire society in shaping the educational
outcomes of schools. Central to this effort is the introduction of extra support to schools in the form of social media communities that are established around schools,
made up mainly of people who are inextricably linked to each school: the alumni and Friends of Schools.

Our Vision

To be a leading online social networking platform for school alumni in Africa and globally, and live up to the adage that education is a societal issue.

former students (alumni) form vibrant social media communities.
