Mission statement:

Impact Network is a New York-based NGO that delivers innovative e-learning programs in rural Africa. We believe that every child deserves access to a quality education. By empowering teachers with tablets, activity ­based lessons, support and weekly coaching, we make this possible for 6,000 students in rural Zambia. We developed a holistic education model called the eSchool 360, running currently in 40+ schools, to sustain high-quality education year after year for less than $5 a month per student.  This is an exciting time in our organization history because in 2017 we launched a 35-school expansion with a randomized controlled trial evaluation in partnership with American Institutes for Research.
