Kagweru Njoroge

Founder, Darasavr

Bold Question: What if all learners had access to personalized and engaging digital learning materials?

Pathway to Metis: Kagweru Njoroge was born and raised in Karatina, Nyeri County. His parents are his inspiration in life and work. His father is a church minister, and his mother is an educationist. During school holidays, he joined his father in visiting congregants and offering spiritual and psychosocial support. His mother taught her learners that education was the only way to empower communities. These experiences instilled in him a deep passion for community and education. As a university student, he engaged in many community support initiatives through Lions International in Nyahururu. Later after joining the Barclays Bank (now ABSA) and later Bank of Africa (now NCBA), his passion for service came to the fore, and he ended up as a CSR champion in both roles. 

2009 was a turning point in his life. He joined the Rotary Club of Meru and was elected president 2 years later. In 2013, he started a knitting project for visually impaired women in Meru County. The project created income-generating opportunities for over 10 visually impaired women. 

In 2020, He founded Darasavr, an online collection of YouTube films for high school students in Kenya, organized by the national curriculum. Since then, he has been working on several EdTech solutions to address the current problems in education. 

His dream is to consistently apply his knowledge and experience to problems in the field of education. His interactions at the Metis fellowship have and continue to assist him in developing more effective strategies for utilizing technology in the classroom to make it more relevant and interesting for learners.
