Hi everyone! I started Cell-Ed with co-Founders, Susan Smalley and Kevin Wall a little under 2 years ago. Before Cell-Ed I graduated from the University of Vermont with a degree in Psychology and Community and International Development. After attending University I spent about a year traveling the world and volunteering. I couldn&amp;amp;#039;t believe that everywhere I went people had access to cell phones but not a proper education. After coming home and meeting with the co-Founders we all realized that a adult literacy distribution platform could make a huge impact. I have been working on Cell-Ed ever since! I must also mention our team members Pilar Gomez and Karla Perez. Without them, the distribution and creation of Cell-Ed would not have been possible!
796 million adults lack basic literacy skills, 2/3 are women. Cell-Ed utilizes the ubiquitous nature of feature phones to distribute basic literacy thereby helping to solve this epidemic.
