PILLAR 2

Reach More Learners

We believe everyone has the right to a high-quality education, and we’re committed to expanding access to education and making learning more affordable for people everywhere.

We want our products and services to help more learners make progress in their lives — regardless of their income level, the way they learn, or their background. Reaching more learners helps us to grow our business and supports our commitment to quality education for all, decent jobs, and equality, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals.

New technologies can play a key role in bringing education to more people in more places.Through partnerships involving NGOs, teachers, education experts, governments, and others, we are also tackling some of the biggest education challenges related to gender inequality, conflict and emergencies settings, and illiteracy.

Our commitments

  • Improve access to and affordability of products and services
  • Collaborate to reach underserved learners
