About EAA

Opening up a world of education

Children love to learn. If they are denied access to knowledge, we also deny them the opportunity to change their lives for the better.


Internet Free Education Resource Bank (IFERB)

Within the IFERB project, girls sit together as they read and write.

The award-winning Internet Free Education Resources Bank (IFERB) is a project-based, game-based and play-based learning approach that consists of multiple resources that promote contextual and holistic hands-on learning for 4 to 15 year olds to learn from their surroundings. The IFERB was launched as an emergency response to support continued learning during COVID-19 school closures and other emergencies. IFERB has also become a solution to improve the quality of learning in low-resource contexts. The resources are all technology free, low resource requiring, interdisciplinary and related to real life contexts. All the resources are developed in-house by the ID team and available as open-source and cost-free content on our website.

Since its launch, IFERB’s reach has grown to 30+ pilot partners across eight countries (Lebanon, India, Kenya, Pakistan, Zambia, Afghanistan, Morocco, and Yemen) and has reached more than 827,000 learners across 175+ counties.  There are learning resources available in 15 languages including Arabic, Dari, Pashto and Tamil.
