the Challenge

Open Educational Resources (OER) have revolutionized the way we learn by making a wealth of learning opportunities freely available to anyone with an internet connection. However, 4 billion people lack access to the internet and cannot use these resources. As a result, the knowledge gap is widening.

Our Solution

We ensure that anyone can access the best educational resources from the web anytime, anywhere, regardless of internet connection. We have created RACHEL, a Remote Area Community Hotspot for Education and Learning, which can deliver the best free educational content to offline communities:



Meet RACHEL, the plug-and-play server that can connect a whole classroom of computers to a world of educational content with a single click.

No Internet required.

Technology alone rarely solves a problem. We see technology as an enabler, which in the hands of a good teacher, can fundamentally change opportunities for youth worldwide. Our chapters exist to spread RACHEL, yes, but also, to develop training materials, local content, and best practices for other users to adopt RACHEL.
