What's in a Name



|    What's in a Name

Axum (or Aksum) is considered by many scholars to be sub-Saharan Africa's first civilization. Located in present-day Ethiopia, what makes Axum notable is that it developed indigenously more than 2000 years ago, largely as a result of home-grown, African innovation.

An axiom is a statement that is self-evident, that needs no proof. In mathematics many proofs use axioms as starting points for their solution.

Our "Axium" is that Africa's needs must be met using indigenous, home-grown solutions that promote African talent and innovation. Axium Education grows talent and opportunity in rural communities by working with students, school leaders and teachers to raise student achievement.
