Education is a human right. We believe digital literacy is, too.
Thaki empowers refugee and vulnerable children in Lebanon, Jordan and other countries in the region to learn and thrive through self-paced, motivational electronic educational tools. These tools are their keys to learning.
Thaki, pronounced “the key,” means “smart” in Arabic.
Thaki. Unlock their potential!
