to eradicate educational inequality.
We aim to make education widely available to every child in the world, regardless of their background or location, and without prejudice.
We are growing our team and looking for like-minded individuals to bring their skills to push our mission forward.

We want to challenge everyone in positive and creative ways every day so we can all evolve together.
