The Name

Camara Education was founded in 2005 by Cormac Lynch, an investment banker who decided to follow his belief that education is the key to a child’s future prosperity.

‘Camara’ is a West African Bantu derived term and means ‘teacher’ or ‘one who teaches with experience’. The correct pronunciation is ‘Ca ma ra’.

The Logo

The ANANSE NTONTAN (“spider’s web”) symbol come from the adinkra symbols found in Ghana and historically used by the Asante tribe on cloth, walls and in pottery. Traditionally it is a symbol of wisdom, creativity, and the complexities of life.
