Solution Summary

Education takes place both in school and at home. But for most children in the developing world, schools are poorly equipped and managed and parents are often busy working multiple jobs. The Ultimate Learning Accelerator (TULA) transforms after-school learning to help children improve their academic performance, develop character traits, and enhance 21st-century skills.

TULA establishes tech-enabled centers near public schools and uses project-based learning to deliver personalized learning experiences, helping kids build the life skills they need to succeed in the real world.
