All people learning is the key to breaking the cycle of global poverty and violence.

OLE is committed to ensuring that everyone has access to high quality, meaningful learning opportunities, especially girls and young women living in low-resource areas. We work with nation-based entrepreneurs who are transforming education into effective and affordable learning systems that benefit all of their people.

OLE’s Planet Learning is a personal learning toolkit that empowers the learner along a lifelong adventure of learning and leadership. It is effective because it is personal and connected with the learner's local community, and the ever changing wider world.
