Technology Expands Opportunity

We believe that information communication technology represents a powerful opportunity to realize the human right to education. We are innovating with technological tools to give Afghans greater access to knowledge and information, and to help both teachers and students develop 21st century skills.

Our Technology for Education program works to harness the potential and power of tech for learning and teaching in challenging environments through the DD Academi. DD Academi is our online learning platform that consists of the following three tools:

Our Technology Works

  1. The Darakht-e Danesh digital library (“DD Library”):
    A curated collection of over 6,000 educational resources in Afghan languages
  2. DD Courses:
    An online course platform of asynchronous open courses, including those from accredited educational institutions, in Afghan languages
  3. DD Classroom:
    A video app for synchronous teaching and learning, available for teachers and instructors teaching at any level, in Afghanistan or anywhere

In addition, we ensure access to virtual learning by facilitating access to hardware and connectivity through the following: 

  1. DDL Lite:
    The “offline” version of the Darakht-e Danesh Library, installed in places without Internet connectivity
  2. Remote Communication Grants:
     which provide devices and/or connectivity packages to individuals and organizations for the purposes of education.

Darakht-e-Danesh is the most used digital library in Afghanistan.
