WE STARTED MAKING A DIFFERENCE FROM 2020
The Online School was born as a response to the global lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. We were able to prove that quality education can be accessed no matter where you are even if that is in a remote village as long as you have a laptop and an internet connection.
We delivered over 15,000 lessons to students across 25 different countries in 2020. We continue to provide support for vulnerable communities with free education programmes. If you would like to support these initiatives then please reach out to us via social media.
tThe goal we have now is to support those students that have been neglected by the physical schooling system and using our understanding of what really makes children happy and couple this with great teachers who love to smile and state of the art technology to be able to deliver a classroom and schooling experience that is revolutionary.
Imagine a school where children can feel safe, free from bullies, be around people who understand are passionate about supporting them. That sounds like the perfect place to send any child.
If a child can be calm, significantly more happy and still achieve everything they want academically in a safe space and at their own pace, then that child will love learning.

This mini-documentary shows our Zambian ambassador, Abraham Zulu talking about how he was able to facilitate and support young girls from his community to take lessons through The Online School.
Talha left formal education at the age of 12 due to bullying he faced due to his hearing impairment. He then moved to Dubai, UAE where education is very expensive.

The Online School support Chosen’s community with 4G data bundles to allow the students to connect Mr Zulu’s laptop to receive live lessons.
We have formulated some amazing partnerships to ensure The Online School can thrive.
We have ambassadors for The Online School in 18 countries. They are able to help us better understand the cultural landscape in their respective countries but are also instrumental in helping us to reach out to vulnerable communities within their localities.
The Online School has teamed up with Team Humanity who primarily help save refugees in Greece. We are working with them to create an “always-on” Online Schooling Hub within Camp Moria (which is home to more than 5,000 children).
