Education increases opportunity for all. It raises the prospects of future generations by providing a path to personal development and greater financial security, enabling people to create better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities.
Omidyar Network looks to new methods to improve the educational ecosystems in underserved communities. We support entrepreneurial models that bring high-quality, affordable schooling, pre-primary education, and vocational training to areas where such education and employment opportunities are scarce. We also invest in the latest teaching and learning technology and pedagogical innovations that have the potential to scale quality across the world.
Our work fosters policy and regulatory environments that encourage quality participation from all sectors and stakeholders, innovation, parental engagement and choice, and public-private partnerships. We support efforts to increase transparency and make information more open and accessible to policymakers, teachers, and parents. By engaging these stakeholders and attracting more entrepreneurial talent to the field, our goal is to improve quality of education, and create opportunity, for disadvantaged learners of all ages.
