1Room - an initiative to make high school free and accessible to anyone, anywhere, around the world
Partners for International Development (PfID)
1Room is an innovative pilot-stage education model for developing countries that leverages technology and evidence to make high-quality schooling affordable and accessible to underserved populations in East Africa and beyond. Our students pursue individual study plans with the support of an internally trained mentor, a curated set of paper-based lessons and group activities, and a library of open-access digital learning material broadcasted to low-cost tablets in a largely offline environment. Designed for replication and scale, 1Room ultimately seeks to launch a large-scale network of schools and learning centers that accommodate the budgets, schedules, and learning needs of low-income populations who are poorly served by traditional school systems.
We need your support as we incubate and refine our pilot classrooms. Your donation will help us develop digital content to help us teach subjects that are not covered by existing digital education resources, such as Kenyan Government and History, and Kiswahili Language Arts.
