Designed with refugees, built for the world

Imagine walking into a classroom and not being able to understand your teacher, or taking a biology test in a foreign language. This is an everyday reality for millions of refugee children whose host country curriculum is taught in a language different from their home.

We developed Kindi to help refugee learners overcome this language barrier through technology and the power of community. We are currently piloting our beta application in Lebanon with students at the Kayany Foundation, and are doing so with support from the MIT Media Lab Refugee Learning Accelerator.
