    Our Strategy for Change

    We've read the writing on the wall warning of a "global learning crisis" if we don't act

Who We Are

OLE is a 501(c)(3) social benefit organization committed to removing the barriers to education by providing open and free access to meaningful learning. Since 2007, we have established Open Learning Communities throughout the developing world so that even the most marginalized individuals are empowered to explore, discover and grow within a publicly-supported, locally-run innovative education system.

Strong Leadership

Our students form lasting relationships, not with tablets, but with locally trained coaches and educators.

Open Education Resources

Our customized tablets come with curated educational content from our basic e-learning library (BeLL).

Continuous Improvement

Our robust system of user feedback and data analytics ensures the ongoing effectiveness of our programs.

Scalable Programs

Our programs consider local needs and capacities to create self-sustainable learning centers worldwide.

Some Of Our Programs

Aside from our permanent programs, we are constantly partnering with local governments and organizations to launch new learning initiatives
