Kaanbal® ("to learn" in Mayan) is a Mexican non-profit organization focused on promoting universal access to information and communications technology in places where the Internet is very limited or non-existent. We ensure that anyone can access the best resources from the web anytime, anywhere, regardless of Internet connection.
Our educational kits for schools and community centers, do not require an Internet connection to work and allow students to instantly access offline versions of the world's best free educational websites including Wikipedia, Khan Academy, mobile apps, educational games, and 360 experience.
We use the Internet not only as a tool for education but also for the generation of economic opportunities. By enabling Internet access at indigenous handicraft cooperatives, we allow artisans to market their products online without leaving their communities, helping them to save money, increase their sales and improve their business network.
Our mission is to improve aspirations and quality of life for people and students from underserved communities by engaging them with the rest of the world through the use of technology.
Ubiquitous connectivity is transforming societies across the globe. Emerging technologies and the growing interconnectedness of our economies will continue to shape social norms, how communities are formed, and how voices are heared.
The future will no longer be only about access to connectivity but will be linked to safety and the ability to leverage the Internet for a broad range of opportunities.
Digital freedoms & rights face an uncertain future. The wave of technological transformation poses grave threats to fundamental rights like freedom of speech, and many others, mainly for remote areas.
We work together with global organizations, companies, and amazing people to bring education and technology to the places that need it the most in order to promote the use of new learning methodologies and to improve the quality of life in the people.
We have worked with generous people like you and have helped to educate and connect several communities. Here are some reasons to choose us:
At Kaanbal we believe that all human beings have the potential to be catalysts of change by working collectively. It is not just volunteers into consideration, it is corporations, government officials, education system, and local communities making this possible. We are grateful for your donation to Kaanbal.
