No Ordinary Box

SmartBox solves 6 challenges faced by schools in developing countries:

  1. No Internet - RACHEL server provides students a vast collection of content sent wirelessly to the laptops.
  2. No Electricity - Runs on battery power the entire school day.
  3. Textbook Shortage - Students have access to an amazing selection of books and learning resources.
  4. Lack of Teachers - Students can learn in the absence of a qualified teacher, and it is a learning resource for teachers.
  5. Messy Wiring Runs - Gone are the days of the traditional computer lab with its tangle of cords. 
  6. Security - Can be securely locked and stored each evening.

It Works!

Case Study: Liberia


In three years, the SmartBox helped take Sinoe County from #11 to #1 on the West African Examination Council (WAEC) exam. In 2014, Sinoe 12th graders had a 23% passing rate. In 2017, they jumped to 88% to top all 15 counties in Liberia. The SmartBox is currently being used in 11 Sinoe County schools. Several thousand students have learned to use the computer, and have gained proficiency in math, the sciences, and other subject areas.
