Educating over 100,000 children in Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Liberia, and India for just $6 a month on average.

Bridge is leveraging data and technology to bring world-class education to families living on less than $2 per person per day. Globally, there are 263 million children and young people not in school, most of whom are girls—and this number is only increasing. In many parts of the developing world, families do not have a choice when it comes to educating their children. The schools on offer to them suffer from uneven quality, corruption, chronic underfunding, and rampant teacher absenteeism—or they are expensive private schools. Bridge disrupts the status quo by developing world-class lessons based on national curricula and in-depth teacher training and support programs, while utilizing cutting-edge wireless technology. Bridge students have fluency and comprehension scores 37% higher and math scores 24% higher than their peers in neighboring government schools. Over three consecutive years, 2015, 2016, and 2017, Bridge students have significantly outperformed the national average—including students attending elite private schools as well as those in government schools—in the KCPE exam.
