Our Vision

We reimagine learning and create courses as learning experiences to open education opportunities for all, and inspire home-grown innovation.

Our agile, collaborative and co-design course-development process brings all stakeholders together to develop contextually relevant and immediately implementable courses that engage, enamour and inspire life-long learning, engagement and ultimately significantly higher completion rates.

Our Core Values

  • Our values reflect who we are, how we learn and engage with our team, our clients and our teachers, and guide how we make decisions as an organisation.
  • We value playing and learning through play, cocreation and collaborative development, and learning journeys made of many experiences, events and people.
  • We are driven to innovate and strive to inspire innovation in all who work with us.

Play

Play is active, engaging and fun. Like the best form of learning. We believe that learning should imitate play as being active, engaging and fun!

CoCreate

When we’re creating, we’re actively finding or inventing solutions, evaluating and analyzing, and growing our potential to be more creative. We believe we exponentially improve all creations when this is a collaborative co-creative process.

Learn

Learning is a process, a journey made of many big and small events, experiences, both good and bad, and people. We learn in many different ways but most often, we learn best when we are invested, motivated and in control.

Innovate Change

Our world desperately needs more innovators, tinkers and thinkers to solve the many local and global challenges. If we want to bring about change in the world, we need to nurture each individual’s potential to innovate contextually embedded solutions that address their immediate needs or that of their community.

The Limina Learning Mode

  • Limina’s learning model is all about life-long learning and paying it forward to the learners our teachers come across every day. 
  • We believe that learning to be innovative in the classroom and adopting sound teaching methods that support every kind of learner is key to teaching success.
  • We encourage and support teachers to create a perpetual learning cycle for themselves and the learners they teach. In this way, we can create a culture of excellence, curiosity, and innovation.
  • Our Liminaires team works tirelessly behind the scenes to imagine a future where learning is accessed by all when and where they need it and to make this imagined dream a reality in all that we do at Limina.
  • We inspire everyone in the education space, including YOU, to pay this forward and make learning available to all, when and where they need it!

Our Purpose

In Africa, we do things our own way. We sing, we dance, we enjoy life and we overcome tremendous challenges with the most inspiring innovations. Africa is written in our hearts and beats its drum in all we do. Listening to our African drumbeat, we at Limina reimagine and nurture home-grown practical solutions for the challenges across our continent. We LIVE innovation and BREATHE creativity!

At Limina we believe we grow our future from the creativity and innovation fostered in classrooms. To foster creativity in the classroom, we need to nurture this in teachers. So we reinvented professional development to focus on nurturing creativity and innovation with EdTechs in the classroom, in the office and in non-education related spaces

Our Identity

Our name and logo have great significance to us. A limen is a threshold. When you want to transform and change in some respect, you need to step through the threshold, and limen becomes a verb – Limina.  Limina means stepping through the threshold, and deliberately and purposefully changing. This deliberate and purposeful change is at the heart of Limina, where we reimagine learning, innovate and strategically make changes.

Shweshwe has deep roots in African society. In the 1840s the Basotho King Moshoeshoe popularised these prints, lending his name to the very iconic colours and patterned prints. Today shweshwe is ingrained in different cultures all over our continent.

Our Limina patterning is based on the very traditional Shweshwe fabric so well known in Africa. We wove Africa’s Shweshwe into the fabric of Limina’s imagery to represent the people we serve, and their diverse learning needs and likes.
