Indigenous Canadian youth in remote communities have unequal access to quality education. 40% of students on Indigenous reserves graduate high school, compared to 90% of students throughout Canada.
The lack of strong support for localized education is contributing to the disappearance of Indigenous language, culture and histories that are not traditionally documented.
Rumie’s Indigenous Learning Portal uses education technology to address the lack of access to localized educational content for youth in Canadian Indigenous communities.
Imagine a digital one-stop-shop for Indigenous Canadian learning resources from communities all across the country. The Indigenous Learning Portal equips Indigenous communities with tools for autonomous learning.
We want to put education back where it belongs, in the hands of communities.
Where the money goes
By voting for Rumie to win Google Impact funding, you’re supporting technology that enables Indigenous communities to lead their own education process.
Currently Rumie works with Indigenous communities in Northern Ontario and Nunavut. Ultimately, we will be reaching across Canada to support reconciliation of education for all communities.
