About Us

Hundreds of millions of children, youth, and adults around the globe lack access to quality education. Learning Equality strives to address this inequality by creating products and tools that can be adapted and contextualized to meet learning needs, with or without Internet access. 

Founded in 2013 by a group of students, Learning Equality first launched the award-winning KA Lite, a platform for accessing Khan Academy offline. Learning Equality expanded on that product in 2017 to create Kolibri, an open-source educational platform that is specially designed to provide offline access to a curated and openly licensed educational content library with tools for pedagogical support, for use in low-resource and low-connectivity contexts. Kolibri has been translated into almost 30 languages and is used in 196 countries and territories. 

Learning Equality has active implementation partnerships in 30+ countries, including organizations such as Vodafone Foundation, UNICEF, and UNHCR, as well as a global network of local collaborators advocating for learning opportunities in their communities. With the support of funders such as Google.org, the Hewlett Foundation, and the nonprofit tech accelerator Fast Forward, we are continuing to grow our products to be able to reach more communities around the world.
