Worldwide, an estimated 750 million people are illiterate and over 263 million children are out of school. Moreover, hundreds of millions of children attend schools in classrooms that are under-resourced with educators that lack proper training. All of this translates to a chronic cycle of poverty and missed opportunities to explore one’s full potential.
A nonprofit initiative of the educational nonprofit organization Visions Global Empowerment, in partnership with philanthropist Robert Friedman, TabSchool is a collaborative, open-source digital platform that offers high quality e-learning games and resources through tablets to underserved children globally.
TabSchool aims to be a one-stop-shop for both creating and distributing e-learning content. TabSchool makes learning fun and easy, yields real learning results, and is accessible to anyone with the desire to learn -- regardless of where you live or what your socio-economic background may be.
TabSchool’s mission is to enable e-learning creation and distribution for marginalized children globally.
We aim to unlock the learning potential of underprivileged children around the world through our open-source platform and innovative, low-cost technology.
We are initially focused on the development of literacy content, as literacy is the building block upon which further learning is able to occur.
