Our Work

We use technology to enhance education and expand opportunities for students.

Our Approach

We work with local communities and governments to help design, fund, implement and manage our programs. 

In 2016 we established the Potential Enhancement Foundation (PEF) a Non-Government organization in Tanzania, as an independent partner. PEF is located in Karatu with an office, staff and 15 year working relationship with schools and local government officials. 

Through PEF, we employ Tanzanians to procure, install and maintain the equipment;  to design and conduct teacher and student training courses, and provide monitoring and evaluation data.

Our vision is to have our collaborative approach replicated in other countries.
