About Us

With scaling in its DNA, onebillion not only wants to make the best reading, writing and numeracy software for children, but also find the best ways to get it into their hands. In Malawi, 50,000 primary school students will be using the ‘onecourse’ software by the end of this year. Worldwide, 100,000 children are already using the onecourse numeracy material in 50 different languages.

Independent research has shown that onebillion software results in significant learning gains, regardless of the child’s gender or background.

onebillion believes in technology as a catalyst for scaleable quality education, with the potential of changing the lives of children all over the world.


onebillion develops software for children to become numerate and confident readers on their own, and in their own language.
