What are the problems with education?


Millions of people around the world lack access to quality education. For many, accessibility remains a privilege. Across all countries around 750 million adults are illiterate and over 264 million children do not go to school (UNESCO). The amount of untapped talent confined by difficult circumstances is immense.

Increasingly high fees for education and costs of living, paired with slow-paced job markets, the current generation across the world has been placed in a very difficult position.

As quality education becomes less and less accessible for the general population, student loan debt continues to grow.

Success Rates

Since inception, MOOCs have demonstrated lacklustre success at best. Absence of appropriate student collaboration, community support, mentors and incentives, result in extremely low course completion rates, regardless of costs involved. More than half of prospective learners never step further than registration.

Major e-learning platforms lack direct focus on less affluent parts of the world and do not hold enough interest in exploring the potential of the economically-underprivelleged.

Our Solution

Unleash the potential

Origami Platform is an ecosystem which connects students, academia, mentors and employers. An interactive e-learning platform providing accessible, affordable education and globally-recognised qualifications.

Origami employs the strength of gamification to create a superchared, collaborative learning environment. Blockchain technology facilitates trusted and secure storage of students’ progress and certifications – reducing fraud and increasing trust.

Why should we care? Why

It can take just one person to develop a cure for a serious disease or help solve a major global crisis. The potential to make positive, life-changing contributions to the world posessed by individuals living in difficult circumstances is immense. Through equipping people with the necessary skills and knowledge, not only will it improve their own lives and lives of those around them, but it could have far reaching effects on everyone around the world.
