Communication between teachers and students is enhanced with digital math tools, using the only known math checker of its kind, that provides teachers and students the support they need to succeed.4Ferries was borne out of extensive research by it’s founder Professor Ralph Johan Back and his team from 2011 – 2017. WeBridge’s represents 4Ferries in Africa and shares the belief that mathematics is the cornerstone of logical thinking and the future of work.

The sustainable and affordable way of building houses
Block solutions invented a unique product for building homes faster, cheaper and stronger.The LEGO-like structures make building homes much faster, are environmentally friendly with carbon footprint of close to zero, as well as durability of 100 plus years. BlockSolutions started from an idea from its founder Markus Silfversberg to solve the need for quick, movable and durable construction products, faced by the United Nations during the Haiti earthquake. Two years later, BlockSolutions was born with a product as durable as concrete, and as easy to put together as lego blocks. With a backlog of 50million homes in the African continent, we have set out to provide dignity through housing. Currently working in different parts of Africa, WeBridge’s work with Block-Solutions is focused on the West African region, ready to deploy two to three factories in 2021. More
