HOW THAKI WORKS
Education is a human right. We believe digital literacy is, too.
Thaki works to source electronic devices with pre-loaded educational content to refugee and vulnerable children
“Laptops from Thaki have given Hope Academy tools to index their library system thereby offering greater access to literacy resources to students.”
A Dire Need
Digital literacy skills are a basic prerequisite for meaningful and lucrative participation in today’s global economy. From a region already lagging in educational quality, hundreds of thousands of Syrian children now have little or no access to formal education due to their displacement. Compounding the situation, host communities in Lebanon, Jordan and other countries around the region face strain on classroom resources, jeopardizing the education of both Syrian refugees in these countries as well as host citizen.
To provide refugee and other vulnerable children with the basic human right of education, Thaki works to source electronic devices with pre-loaded educational content to children in Lebanon (with plans to expand across the region). Children and adults alike are able to learn computer, STEM, English and other skills – bridging their education and learning even while awaiting permanent placement.
HOW THAKI WORKS
Electronic devices, such as laptops, are often retired long before their productive life is over.
Thaki collects such devices from corporations, institutions and individuals.
Thaki loads the devices with software and high quality, interactive educational content.
These are then distributed to educational centers that work with refugee and vulnerable children.
