Not everyone gets the same start in life - access to the same resources, the same sense of
security or an equal variety of social services.
When you give a young girl access to a quality education, however, they will become empowered
women and leaders in their community.
There is nothing more mighty than an empowered

Meet Our Partners
LEARN uses community schools, usually found in the house of a community elder or other location
very close to the community, to reach thousands of children and youth across Afghanistan. LEARN
started their work in Kandahar where it can be very dangerous for youth to travel to school.
Through the Rumie App, they provide quality educational resources, mentorship, training, and
access to innovative technology tools.
Charmaghz is a Kabul-based non-profit that runs a mobile library out of a repurposed city bus.
This bus drives around visiting communities in Kabul, providing youth with the opportunity to
access a variety of learning resources. The Charmaghz mobile library is using the Rumie App to
provide high-quality learning resources with a focus on math, health, and life skills for
children of all ages.
Nokhbagan University (NU) is one of the leading institutions in the country and is located in
the outskirts of Mazar-e-Sharif in Northern Afghanistan. NU is leading an organization-wide
effort to move its entire course curriculum to the Rumie LearnCloud in order to support students
to learn from anywhere at any time, vastly increasing their educational access and capabilities.
CW4WAfghan is running a pilot project at Fatema Tul Zahra Girls School in Kabul with 30 Android
Tablets loaded with the Rumie App. Through the Rumie App, teachers and learners have access to a
full library of resources focused on English Language Learning in order to increase their test

accessible without Internet connectivity.
Skateistan empowers children through skateboarding and education in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and
South Africa. By combining skateboarding with creative arts-based education, Skateistan is
giving children the opportunity to become leaders for a better world. Skateistan is implementing
Rumie technology into their Skate & Create curriculum and drop-in programs in their Skate
Schools in Kabul and Mazar-e-Sharif.
"The Rumie Project is a very effective and useful program because it taught me how to use modern technology.
I had never used any tablet or smartphone in our home before. The resources inside the Rumie App such as
video clips, books, applications are also very informative and awesome. My biggest wish is to make education
available throughout our country with the help of technology."

Goal of the Mighty Girls
Learning for Everyone, Everywhere
The Mighty Girls campaign is supporting the enhancement of Rumie's technology solution. This
will include localization of content, interactivity features, and developing Rumie's brand new
WebApp to ensure that that the Rumie App is accessible on any and all devices (mobile phones,
tablets, laptops, etc.). These enhancements will allow anyone, anywhere to access quality
digital learning resources.
The Rumie App offers a low-cost and scalable solution to ensure everyone has access to a quality
education. Partners of Rumie choose or create the learning material that is most appropriate for
their unique context and download that content using the Rumie App for offline usage.
