In a proud example of South Australian education and talent export, the organisation In2Ed Africa is determined to be an agent of change by giving every child in African countries-Kenya and Rwanda the opportunity to access quality education to improve their character and creativity for a better life and future.
Susan Knapp and other co-founders operate In2Ed Africa by raising funds, seeking investments, and donations to help children in these regions access quality education for a greater future. In2Ed Africa is a not for profit entity (public company limited by guarantee).
SDG 4 is a critical factor that involves both the governments and individuals; In2Ed believes everyone deserves to have a quality education. To achieve this, they work in partnership with low-income communities in Eastern Central Africa so that the younger generation can achieve their true potential.
True success comes by being transparent, accountable, and respecting the native culture; for true inclusivity to happen, the organisation ensures that the communities’ value is upheld to give room for children to learn skills and engage parents in their ward’s activities.
In2Ed Africa (In2Ed Africa Foundation Ltd) was founded in 2018 by Susan Knapp out of passion and genuine concern to give hope and a better future for children and younger generations around her. Originally from Cowandilla in South Australia, Susan started out as a professional teacher. She spent time as acting head in Green Hills Academy.rw two years before founding her own organisation in Rwanda.
Susan has over thirty years of experience as a professional educator across African countries and Australia and holds the following qualifications from the University of South Australia:
If education were a person, it would sure be Susan Knapp. Her life-long quest for learning is not enough; she has shared her skillset with the world and successfully taught at primary and secondary levels in countries like Malaysia, Rwanda, Kenya and Austria. She also majors in cross-cultural understanding and cognitive and physical challenges across different cultural and language backgrounds. Quite the pioneer in global educational advancement!
Susan is a trainer, a speaker, an author in her soon to be published book titled – “Nothing is Too Big!” she is an agent of change who strongly believes that “when you provide children in resource-poor communities with skills, you open their world to one full of possibilities”.
Having just finished recording her audiobook, Susan speaks of when her “life fell to peices” – but then the power of possibility. The power and courage in not being a victim.

While the children’s future is essential, In2Ed Africa ensures the teachers are part of this great move by motivating them and providing training opportunities to build and develop their carrier.
“When you provide children in resource-poor communities with skills, you open their world to one full of possibilities.”
