Pakistan | Digital Inclusion


Orenda bridges the digital divide between private and public schools in Pakistan by providing engaging, high-quality digital education.


There are 22.3 million children in Pakistan out of school and enrolment and performance both decrease as children move from primary grades to secondary grades.


Orenda provides engaging digital education through animated videos and interactive quizzes via their digital platform, Taleemabad. The GSMA supported Orenda in March 2021 to expand both the curriculum and reach of the Taleemabad app by developing the app for KaiOS phones, which addresses affordability and accessibility barriers. Orenda also launched their B2B solution for low-cost schools by developing an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to further improve accessibility.


Since partnering with the GSMA, Orenda has:

  • Raised $2.3 million in funding to explore and experiment with new models, with funders including the Malala Fund and Sorenson.
  • Received $1 million from the Qatar Foundation ($800,000 from the foundation and $200,000 in matching funds), which invested in them specifically because of their new AI technology and potential to replicate their services in other countries.
  • Been selected for the second cohort of London School of Economics 100x Impact Accelerator.
