Education is a human right.
We believe digital literacy is, too.

Thaki empowers refugee and vulnerable children to learn and thrive through self-paced, motivational electronic educational tools. These tools are their key to accessing 21st century skills.

Thaki, pronounced “the key,” means “smart” in Arabic.

How Thaki Works

1. We collect

Organizations can donate their gently used electronics to us. We collect them and give them new life.

2. We load

We’ve developed a platform that integrates a variety of informative, interactive, and educational content.

3. We distribute

We then distribute the devices to education centers that work with refugee and vulnerable children.

4. We support

We provide resources and tools to support teachers and children in e-learning and digital literacy.

Thaki is a social impact non-profit, non-sectarian, non-political association founded in 2015. We operate on a donation model for second-hand devices (mostly laptops but tablets and projectors as well), with the requirement that these devices must have their chargers, be fully functional, young and robust enough to have at least a three-year remaining life span. We target corporate and institutional donors who typically have a two or three-year retirement policy on their laptops. Due to internet connectivity issues in many places where our recipient partners are located, we put both open-source and proprietary e-learning educational content on these laptops, a collection which is getting richer over time as additional content partnerships are forged.
Our recipient education partners are in great need of laptops to further their work. They operate under severe resource constraints in difficult circumstances and value the contribution of Thaki’s e-learning material to their mission.
Thaki Nederland is registered as a foundation in the Dutch Chamber of Commerce: #65713834, RSIN # 8562 29 490, with ANBI status. Thaki is also a registered NGO in Lebanon. Financial administration operates out of Thaki Netherlands.

“The only thing you can take with you is your education.”

HEAR OUR STORY
We operate a carbon neutral organization. In 2020, Thaki started tracking carbon emissions arising from core operational activities: work-from-home, business travel and logistics. We then offset our footprint by purchasing verifiable carbon credits.

SUPPORTING THE UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

Thaki has joined the cause to ensure we meet part of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, a set of global priorities to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
