40K has been set up to cater to an ever-widening gap in the education ecosystem in developing countries, where the urban-rural divide has created inequity in access to good quality learning resources.
Our Belief is that education can change lives and hence must be available equally to all children, irrespective of their location, gender, race or circumstances.
Today, we do this through an innovative use of technology that makes good quality learning content and assessments available offline for use in environments with no internet, lack of consistent electricity and a shortage of trained teachers.
Currently, our flagship program, PLUS English (https://www.40kplus.com), is being used by schools in India and Cambodia to build students' competency in listening, reading, writing and speaking basic English.
We believe that when children can read, write and speak English, they can read to learn and engage in meaningful conversations, which becomes the foundation for future study and increased employability.
