Our Theory of Change

Our impacts are far-reaching and demonstrate the positive impact that Digital Education and comprehensive teacher professional development can have on the motivation of children and progress in providing a quality education for all.
Our Theory of Change guides the implementation of our work across the globe, ensuring that our global programme remains bespoke for the variety of schools contexts that we work. This model supports us to monitor the effectiveness of our education programme, and remain dynamic in acting on constant feedback from those in the field.

Why We Support Education

  • Education is a basic human right for all children, yet currently education is inaccessible to many children worldwide, and education quality is not guaranteed.
  • The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 4 calls for a universal commitment to ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning by 2030.
  • Globally, 263 million young people remain out of school, with the majority living in the world’s most disadvantaged contexts. Schooling is impacted by a wide range of social impacts including poverty, child labour, early marriage and conflict.  
  • Emergencies are exacerbating the global education crisis with 75 million children and young people out of school in crises contexts.

While we develop our own resources and build projects from inception, we also collaborate with partners to design innovative ways to transcend these barriers.
