Africa Education Holdings (AEH), formerly Maarifa Education, was founded in 2014 to create an education holding company that would serve citizens and countries across Africa. We provide high quality, accessible and market-relevant higher education through investment in private universities.

AEH is passionate about serving its university partners, the students and alumni of those universities, their faculty and their staff. We also aim to serve the communities and countries in which the universities operate. We believe that through these partnerships we can help transform Africa into an economic and intellectual powerhouse. This feat is based on the strength and knowledge of her people, her sheer size and scale and her vastly untapped resources which all Africans deserve to share.
