OLE pilots “Todos Conectados” program in San Pablo, Guatemala
Recently, Open Learning Exchange completed an eight-month pilot demonstrating and documenting OLE’s Todos Conectados strategy for enabling a large number of communities in San Pablo, Guatemala to help their members thrive. See our Guatemala blog series for more details!
At OLE, our mission is to empower and uplift communities, creating an environment where every member can thrive and reach their full potential, despite any obstacles such as poverty, corruption, and violence.
OLE’s big idea is to demonstrate a solution to the three most serious barriers to learning: the lack of quality materials, the lack of effective teachers, and the lack of meaningful connections with the rest of the world. Our work is to continue to develop and document the power of OLE’s Personal Learning Toolkit, a scalable, affordable, community-centered solution that works offline with solar power, using any device with a browser.
We believe learning is meaningful when it is:
In partnership with nation-based educational entrepreneurs who establish independent organizations, with leadership, staff and funding, OLE provides strategic advice and technical support, and regularly assembles our partners to share and learn from each other.
OLE’s Exchange Partners

Our local partners (in formation) can be found in Peru, Mexico, United States, Canada, Ghana, Togo, DRC, Uganda, Kenya, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Somalia, Madagascar, Turkey, Bulgaria, Lebanon, Jordan, Nepal, India, and Cambodia.
