The Challenge

Natural disasters, health crises like Ebola, and country conflicts including the ongoing war in Syria can severely disrupt the delivery and quality of children’s education. Even after the conflict subsides, interruptions in education can have long-term consequences on student enrollment and retention in school, as well as their cognitive, academic and socio-emotional development.

The Big Idea

TeleTaleem proposed providing internet and computer learning to students in refugee camps through a satellite internet enabled mobile van. The van is equipped with cost effective tablet pc's and backup power.
