With 1/100 of California's per-pupil budget, many schools in Nepal lack reliable electricity, the Internet, and teaching resources. The interactive, inexpensive Looma system, powered by solar, overcomes these barriers with bright projected video, ample audio, and a library with the national curriculum, open-source content, teacher aids, team learning-exercises, and lesson plans.
Morocco Library Project
Morocco Library Project (MLP) develops English class and school libraries in the most underserved communities of rural Morocco, in collaboration with local teachers. Starting with a dream and one library, MLP has developed more than 50 of these libraries and now also runs short story competitions for young people.
Mara Girls Project
In a region where only 1 in 15 girls makes it to secondary school, Mara Girls Leadership School in Talek, Kenya, provides a high-quality education for the most motivated teen girls. We supported OliveSeed Foundation on a library project and other educational enrichment at the school.
