The Problem

Over one sixth of the world is functionally illiterate, with devastating consequences for individuals AND nations. The illiterate die young, earn less, experience more crime.

The Challenge

Traditional models of education do not offer solutions to the vast global illiteracy problem in the short-term. The shortage of teachers is one of the biggest constraints.

The Opportunity

Today, four great forces exist in the world, which, if harnessed and mobilized effectively could increase literacy dramatically. This is a massive, game-changing opportunity.

 Our Plan

Our “Think Big, Start Small” plan begins with a small proof-of-concept phase, moves to a scaling phase with thousands, ends with global expansion to millions.
