Expanding Educational Opportunities for Underserved Communities

Focus at the intersection of learning differences and racial justice.

Our U.S Impact

We are committed to education equity so that learners of any age, ability, and zip code can thrive and succeed. We are developing a model for national social change to close learning gaps at the intersection of education, racial justice, and disability rights. 

Our Global Impact:

Every child deserves the opportunity to learn. The lack of accessible resources, coupled with inadequate teacher training and persistent social stigma, creates a significant achievement gap for students with print disabilities in developing countries.

We strive to maximize the social impact of our work by ensuring that all learning materials are accessible via our leading global edtech platform, while also changing the way content is created.

All learners have the right to access educational opportunities.
