Colegio Maria Cano in Malabo, Equitorial Guinea is celebrating its 5 year anniversary. In a short space of time, it is fast establishing itself as one of the top private education establishments in the country. This year saw an unprecedented number of students enroll at this prestigious school.

Director Milondo Kabamba has been a key element of the school's success, always exploring new ways to engage. She says, "Our mission is to inspire, empower, and connect the next generation. We also want our children to grow and learn in a pleasant environment." Kabamba herself was raised in Equitorial Guinea but has also lived and worked in the US. "My experiences abroad have enabled me to think differently on how we can better equip the young children of Equitorial Guinea to be successful here and abroad." 

 

She says, "Business is becoming increasingly global and technology driven, we are preparing our children with teachers from multiple cultures and countries incl
