In many parts of the developed world, schools use cloud computing, educational software, learning games, videos, and websites to enhance the learning experience for students. In many other regions, however, students have no access to computers, the internet, or even reliable textbooks. At ET Learns, we believe that every child deserves access to cutting-edge, twenty-first-century education technology, no matter who they are, where they live, or how much money they make. Our mission at ET Learns is to ensure that students in rural and underserved areas don’t have to wait decades to learn with the best.
ET LEARNS MISSION: PROVIDE MODERN EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY TO STUDENTS AND TEACHERS IN THE MOST UNDERSERVED PARTS OF ETHIOPIA
Ethiopia is at a turning point in its history. A longtime underdog, the proud Ethiopian people have had to fight for many of the opportunities we take for granted. We believe everyone deserves a chance to learn – a chance to succeed.
With over 40 years of experience working in Ethiopia, ET Learns looks to the future. We aim to empower individuals, families, and communities through access to quality education and modern technology. Together, we can provide a future that students and teachers so desperately need.

- Partnered to install 17 learning labs in primary schools, secondary schools, and community libraries.
- Brought more than 300,000 new books to school libraries.
