Hello World

Hello World is tackling the global education deficit by teaching the world’s most marginalised communities to build and maintain solar-powered, wi-fi enabled computer terminals. Each ‘Hello Hub’ is rugged enough to be outdoors, has 8 touch-screens and provides free internet access and educational software to over 1,000 people.

The Global Education Deficit

The Global Education Deficit
1-in-5 children has no access to an education - that's 265 million kids! Sometimes school is too expensive or too far away, the journey is too dangerous or there just aren’t any schools. Yet education is a Human Right. 

Jackline’s Story

Jackline’s Story
Despite running a tailoring business in Fort Portal, Uganda, Jackline couldn’t afford to send her children to school. Then her 3 year old daughter, Janet, discovered the local Hello Hub. Now all the family can learn, play and share stories.

Self-Sustainable, Scalable & Affordable

Self-Sustainable, Scalable & Affordable
To educate via a Hello Hub costs less than £1 per child, per year. Hello World’s next build in Nakivale Refugee camp in Uganda will provide vital educational resources for children plus access to critical healthcare information for their parents.
