What we do
The Age of Learning Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to fundamentally improving the education of underserved children on a global scale. By 2025, the Foundation’s global goal is to reach 10 million children in at least 10 countries with digital learning solutions to help them build strong learner identities, achieve foundational literacy and numeracy, and pursue lifelong learning.
The Foundation works with governments and NGOs—including UNICEF and UNESCO as a member of their Global Education Coalition—to provide highly scalable, sustainable digital learning programs that have been proven to measurably advance academic skills, at no cost to the children and families being served. The Foundation also provides teacher training, family engagement, and community outreach support. Working collaboratively with partners including ministries of education, and other organizations, the Foundation has enabled children around the world to benefit from Age of Learning’s research-proven learning resources.
As a leading education technology organization, we blend the science of learning, education best practices, innovative technology, and masterful creativity that results in engaging, effective educational experiences that bring learning to life.

Where we work
All children deserve a strong foundation for success in school and beyond. The Age of Learning Foundation works in low- and lower-middle income countries. In all of our work, we engage international education experts to measure our work’s impact, so we can continually increase our efficacy and value in each location.
- Kenya: In partnership with Akili Kids, we are broadcasting our educational video content and offering free access to our digital learning products.
- Costa Rica: We launched our first pilot in Costa Rica in 2018 to study the use of ABCmouse to improve English language skills. Following our study of that successful pilot (see our research brief in English or Spanish), we are now expanding our work throughout the country in partnership with the Ministry of Education.
