Empowered Women Power the World
Not everyone gets the same start in life - access to the same resources, the same sense of security, or an equal variety of social services. When you give young girls access to a quality education, however, they will become empowered women and leaders in their community. There is nothing more mighty than an empowered woman.
The Mighty Girls campaign is supporting the enhancement of Rumie's technology solution, especially for our program partners in Afghanistan. This will include localization of content, interactivity features, and developing Rumie's brand new WebApp to ensure that that the Rumie App is accessible on any and all devices (mobile phones, tablets, laptops, etc.). These enhancements will allow anyone, anywhere to access quality digital learning resources.
Rumie is currently working with 5 partners in Afghanistan:
LEARN uses community schools, usually found in the house of a community elder or other location very close to the community, to reach thousands of children and youth across Afghanistan. LEARN started their work in Kandahar where it can be very dangerous for youth to travel to school. Through the Rumie App, they provide quality educational resources, mentorship, training, and access to innovative technology tools.
Charmaghz is a Kabul-based non-profit that runs a mobile library out of a repurposed city bus. This bus drives around visiting communities in Kabul, providing youth with the opportunity to access a variety of learning resources. The Charmaghz mobile library is using the Rumie App to provide high-quality learning resources with a focus on math, health, and life skills for children of all ages.
Nokhbagan University (NU) is one of the leading institutions in the country and is located in the outskirts of Mazar-e-Sharif in Northern Afghanistan. NU is leading an organization-wide effort to move its entire course curriculum to the Rumie LearnCloud in order to support students to learn from anywhere at any time, vastly increasing their educational access and capabilities.
Canadian Women For Women in Afghanistan is running a pilot project at Fatema Tul Zahra Girls School in Kabul with 30 Android Tablets loaded with the Rumie App. Through the Rumie App, teachers and learners have access to a full library of resources focused on English Language Learning in order to increase their test scores and drive improved educational outcomes. All of these interactive resources are fully accessible without Internet connectivity.
Skateistan empowers children through skateboarding and education in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa. By combining skateboarding with creative arts-based education, Skateistan is giving children the opportunity to become leaders for a better world. Skateistan is implementing Rumie technology into their Skate & Create curriculum and drop-in programs in their Skate Schools in Kabul and Mazar-e-Sharif.
