Solve Education! (SE!) is a global technology non-profit organization founded in 2015 by Peng Tsin Ong and Peihan Janine Teo. Solve Education! is making education and employment accessible to children and youth who do not have access to school around the globe.[1][2] It is headquartered in Bandung, Indonesia, and it has offices in Singapore, USA and India.[3]

History

Solve Education! was founded in December 2015 after Peng Tsin Ong attended the Africa Innovation Summit in Cape Verde in 2014[4] where he led a plenary session on financing innovation.[5] At the end of the summit, he engaged stakeholders from Africa on the ideal educational intervention for narrowing the gap of education inequalities to help produce knowledge workers for a knowledge economy.[2] It was after the summit that Solve Education! was born, to offer scalable educational intervention which can work with limited infrastructure in low income countries of Asia and around the world.[4]

In 2017, Solve Education! launched its mobile learning app, Dawn of Civilization, in Indonesia.[6]
