What kids learn today shapes the world we live in tomorrow

That's why Google.org is supporting organizations that use technology and innovation to help more children get a better education.

A closer look

The challenge

Technology can create richer learning environments and improve learning outcomes, but not all students benefit equally from these advances. While children around the world are attending school in record numbers, according to UNESCO, 250 million school-age children still aren’t learning basic reading or math, and only 40% of children in low- and middle-income countries are on track to gain the skills needed for today’s workforce.

Our focus

To help more children reach their potential, we connect education innovators to catalytic funding and the best of Google’s volunteer expertise and resources. We’re focused on supporting primary education in developing countries and computer science education, worldwide.

Our work

Closing global education gaps

Students in disadvantaged communities continue to lag behind their peers with more resources—and at the current pace, it would take 100 years for these communities to catch up. We can’t let those students wait. So we’re donating $50 million, along with technical volunteer expertise from across Google, to organizations that are tackling this challenge in three ways: getting students the right learning materials, giving teachers the latest skills and techniques, and making learning possible outside of classroom.

Taking digital content offline for students without internet

Expanding access to computer science education

The demand for computer science skills in the workforce is rapidly growing—but too many students don’t have the chance to learn those skills. We’re investing in nonprofits that are expanding computer science education and training students, women, and underrepresented minorities in computational thinking.
