We are pleased to announce to you that we are launching a monthly newsletter from now on. A simple and interactive content that we hope will bring you into our world.
If you receive this update, it means that you are passionate about quality digital training & education, skills development, youth empowerment, and sustainability in underrepresented communities around the world. Just like us.
We may be a bit technical at times, but we are keen to let you know how our technology, our mobile app and web platform, O-lab, is developing. As Origin Learning Fund and O-lab app, we will also talk about the social impact we are creating together with our partners worldwide.
Don’t worry about spam, our intent is to share content that is pleasant and worth reading.
Enjoy reading and do not hesitate to contact us if you want to break the barriers of education together!
O-lab: From Colombia to Nigeria
Origin Learning Fund became an international reality during the pandemic. O-lab’s adaptability to any context, content, language, plus its accessibility features such as offline use in low-tech devices, have permitted us to reach out to those unrepresented communities cut off from educational and professional opportunities due to lack of resources and connectivity. The International Telecommunications Union was the first to believe in our potential in Africa, and from April 2022 we are active in Nigeria. Our goal in the country is to facilitate access to quality education for 2000 at-risk youth through O-lab and build their social entrepreneurship skills to cope with community issues.
In September we achieved some key objectives:
- Established partnerships with 3 youth/women-led grassroots Nigerian organizations: Wadi Ben-Hirki Foundation, TechHer, Oakbridge Foundation
- Collaboration with 13 primary and secondary schools across Abuja, Enugu, Adamawa, and Kaduna
- Digitized on O-lab 4 courses of our partners for beneficiaries:
- Leadership Development
- Environmental Responsibility
- Peace & Conflict Management
- Digital Literacy Awareness
- Delivered 20 tablets among our partners and schools
