“Youth who are facing poverty and inequality”
Today, hundreds of millions of young people face barriers to education linked to poverty, diversity politics, gender, disability, armed conflict, and displacement. Inadequate access to quality education keeps inequality alive by preventing disadvantaged youth from attaining the skills to take their economic situation into their own hands. By 2020, 70% of the world will have a basic smartphone and intermittent internet connectivity. The education technology industry sees this opportunity and has responded with lots of new software. However, there’s a problem: the families who can pay for this technology are not the ones who need it most! Even worse, a lot of existing technology is built for users who are already motivated by their communities to learn.
Our vision is the world where all students can access education and gain confidence in their ability to learn. Our goal is to bring free, engaging educational software to the low-end phones and intermittent internet connectivity that will soon cover the globe.
The design of our game encourages students to be independent, analytical problem-solvers, so they have the skills required for a world that’s changing faster than we ever thought possible!
We even build in real-life incentives by directly linking success in the game to opportunities on our online employment platform.
Following learning journeys personalized and guided by Artificial Intelligence, our educational game app will empower students with skills and confidence to face the challenges of a changing world, and transform their own lives.
Our innovative education technology uses gamification, incentives, and artificial intelligence to provide youth with a fun, easy-to-access way to learn, no matter where they’re from or who they are.
Here are the places where we’re currently helping the world’s youth learn.
