Summary

Imagine dreaming of being an engineer but not having access to books or internet. Imagine living in a place with no libraries or internet when you dream of becoming a lawyer. Many children of Myanmar does not have access to educational resources. Tekkatho supplies schools and universities in Myanmar with eTekkatho MyLibrary, a digital library that students and teachers can access without internet. For 3 dollars you can give one child/student access to educational resources for a whole year!

Challenge

Today's students, who will play such a key role in the economic, social and political future of Myanmar, are struggling to gain a relevant education in institutions that lack the tools they need to deliver a strong learning environment. Millions of learners in Myanmar lack access to the internet and so cannot access the wealth of learning opportunities online. By building digital libraries that work without an internet connection, our projects deliver quick, effective solutions to this problem.

Solution

Our solution is to build self-contained digital libraries at schools, community libraries and refugee camps, connecting Myanmar's offline learners to the best of the world's open educational resources. Our libraries are packed full of school textbooks, videos, quizzes and games to help student learn. With your support, we can provide access to world-class educational materials to help people of all ages to gain an education and make a real change to their life chances.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that improved access to resources in education will transform minds and opportunities, powering tolerance and enabling more fulfilling lives. eTekkatho MyLibrary is a driver of change right across Myanmar. With the support of partners and donors, we are setting up educational infrastructures across the whole country so young people can benefit from the opportunities digital technologies bring wherever they study.
