Empowered women power the world

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 woman.

“We believe we found a shortcut, an innovative way to tackle major problems our community schools face, and that's the Rumie Solution”

— Pashtana Durrani, Founder of LEARN Afghanistan

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.”

— Kimya, 11th Grade Student at FTZ School

Goal of the Mighty Girls campaign

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 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.

Spread the Word

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 use.
