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.

Thaki. Unlock their potential!

How Thaki Works

1. Collect

We collect gently used electronic devices from
corporations and institutions

2. Load

We have developed a bespoke
platform that integrates a
variety of highly informative
and interactive software and
educational content

3. Distribute

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

4. Support

We provide tools and resources to support teachers and learners with their learning journeys and to gain 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.”



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.
