Team Cell-Ed was born out of a staggering need. A need for nearly one billion adults – two out of three who are women – to read and write. From Miami to Mombasa, the team witnessed these adults scramble to access the classrooms, teachers and books necessary to learn. There were never enough, if any. But what the founders noticed these adults did have were basic cell phones. So they asked, “What if a cell phone can teach forgotten adults to read?” After a two-year, Los Angeles-based pilot, the results were outstanding. Learners wholeheartedly embraced, and excelled at, this cell phone-based approach. Today, Cell-Ed aims to reach millions of low literate adults in the United States with the basic literacy, language, and life skills they demand and need. A woman & minority owned edtech start up; Team Cell-Ed brings the power of personalized learning on the go.
