Hundreds of millions of children, youth, and adults around the globe lack access to quality education. Learning Equality strives to address this inequity by creating products and tools that can be adapted and contextualized to meet learning needs, with or without Internet access.
Founded as a nonprofit organization in 2013 by a group of students, Learning Equality first launched KA Lite, our first-generation platform which brought Khan Academy videos and exercises offline. Learning Equality expanded on that product in 2017 to create Kolibri, an adaptable end-to-end suite of open-source tools, educational resources, and support materials designed for offline-first teaching and learning. We've always focused on boosting learning outcomes in some of the world's most challenging contexts, supporting disconnected learning in refugee camps, rural schools, orphanages, and out-of-school programs. To date, Kolibri has been translated into 30 languages and is being used in over 215 countries and territories.
Learning Equality is directly supporting the implementation of Kolibri in more than 30 countries with collaborators such as UN Women, Vodafone Foundation, UNICEF, and UNHCR, as well as through a global network of organic adopters advocating for learning opportunities in their communities. With the support of organizations 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.

Site Reliability Engineers at Learning Equality design and maintain servers to ensure stable global access to our products using such tools as Kubernetes, Docker, Terraform, Google Cloud Platform and PostgreSQL. Our deployed products are open source on Github.
