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

OLE is committed to ensuring that everyone is a learner, especially those living in the most impoverished, violence-riven and disrupted parts of the world.

NEWS!

On Sunday, September 17, OLE was selected by MIT Solve from 20 finalists, who were among hundreds of Challenge proposals, as one of the best solutions for helping to prepare disadvantaged youth for the workforce of the future.  We are also among the six Solvers to receive the Atlassian Prize,  which will enable OLE to improve youth career pathways in health, education, technology and business.

That same week, we heard that our partner, OLE Ghana was given a national award as the "Best Company In The Application of Technology to Education"

Our Work

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:
