WHY DO YOU NOT FIRST DEVELOP SOMETHING FOR THE DEVELOPED WORLD AND THEN USE THAT TO FUND DEPLOYMENTS INTO THE DEVELOPING WORLD?

Most education technology companies are doing that. They build something for the developed world and then try to adapt it to work in more challenging environments. We haven’t seen this approach work, because too many assumptions about the easier developed-world problem are built into the software.

We are doing it in the other direction. By building something for the most challenging of scenarios, not only do we affect the lives of those that need it most, but we also build something suitable for children who live in less challenging environments. We want to build an education platform that truly anyone can use, and for free!
