About Us

THINK OUT OF BOUNDS.

OUR MISSION

We use play to disarm global social issues and inspire social invention around the world.

OUR VISION

A world where anyone can create something that matters. A world where we tackle social issues together. Together, we can make invention the sexiest thing ever.

IT IS OUR MISSION TO CREATE PRODUCTS LIKE THE SOCCKET THAT INSPIRE AND SUPPORT SOCIAL INVENTION IN AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE--PRODUCTS THAT SPARK THE INNER CREATIVE IN ALL OF US.

OUR IMPACT MODEL

At Uncharted Play, we aim to provide:

  • Joyful, renewable sources of power for resource-poor communities
  • Tangible, fun tools for STEM education globally
  • A platform to motivate organic physical activity
  • An inspirational product to inspire social invention

To achieve this, we distribute the SOCCKET (and soon more of our products!) through schools and community education centers around the world with the help of established NGOs on the ground.

We aim to distribute 1 SOCCKET for every 5 children, and 1 Portable Lamp for every child. Each child can then use his or her lamp to take power from the SOCCKET to bring home. Once we have enough Power Play Kits to meet the needs of a school or community center within our implementation partners' network, we ship them and begin aggregating kits for the next school or community center.
