About us


Milani comes from the isiZulu word, meaning ‘to grow’.

Milani Education is a learning tool which utilises learning material from the best schools in the country, refines them and filters them into the correct sections and gives students anywhere in South Africa access to this amazing quality of education.


Our mission is to nourish the hungry minds because an educated mind always has a voice.


Our vision is to provide children in South Africa, irrespective of their financial circumstances, access to a high standard of education.

Milani provides a safe place where students can learn at their own pace as well as prepare for a future of technology. The platform is created for students by a student, with the vision of inspiring hope of a brighter future for the youth of today.

Founder Alex

Milani Education was founded by Alexandra Lutz, a Grade 9 pupil at the time, during the COVID-19 hard lock-down of 2020. This was a time when the inequality of South Africa’s educational system was highlighted and further worsened as schools temporarily closed.

Only a small minority of students had access to digital learning resources where the vast majority of students had no access to online learning at all. This resulted in several months and now years of irreplaceable learning time being lost. Milani was founded as a simple idea to share existing learning content with a few students in need, and has now grown into an online platform providing a library of resources to thousands of students at the click of a button.
