OLE is founded on the belief that every person has the right, not privilege, to a quality basic education.
We help our students nurture their body and mind so they can meet their full potential
We help people become, not just literate, but life-long learners and leaders in their communities.
We've read the writing on the wall warning of a "global learning crisis" if we don't act
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.
Aside from our permanent programs, we are constantly partnering with local governments and organizations to launch new learning initiatives
Join the Discussion! Our CEO and program directors are constantly posting new content in response to recent current events, thought-provoking editorials, reforms in online education, and readers' comments.
