Impact and ambition


our impact

Impact numbers dashboard_final.png

A total number of 56.000.000 courses have been taken in the period from 2014 to 2017.
That total number consists of 40.000.000 offline courses and 16.000.000 online courses.

As many as 12.000.000 children used our course material in the period from 2014 to 2017.
Of those children, 8.00.000 worked offline and 4.000.000 worked online.

Above information is about our reach from 2014 - 2017. We have reached over 20 million children from the start of our foundation in 2004.


our ambition

The shocking truth is that still millions of children in the world are not going to school, and that going to school does not mean they get the proper education. We can provide the chance to make a living. We have the ambition to reach 100 million children in 2025.

Our ambition: 100 million children reached in 2025!
