Share knowledge, improve lives

SkillEd offers a versatile and lightweight e-learning solution – ideal when internet is slow or not available, and designed to facilitate collaboration between organizations.

Widespread education and joint action are key to addressing pressing global issues like poverty, climate change, food insecurity, and human rights. Therefore, we aim to make learning more accessible and cooperation between organizations easy.

SkillEd promotes a blended learning approach which is already successfully used in many different countries and learning areas, for example to train farmers in South America, Africa, and Asia, to teach in schools in Afghanistan or to make Ugandan refugee camps more sustainable.

Our e-learning platform, tools and contents are optimized for use in remote areas, developing countries, disaster areas and conflict zones
