Looma: Our Current Project


Education in Nepal depends on the performance of 34,000 widely-scattered schools. Many lack the basics that we take for granted: textbooks, white boards, electricity and the Internet.



Looma has all of these and more in a compact wooden box, allowing teachers to provide a level of education never before achieved in Nepal, and can be configured to the curriculum for any country.

Donations fund supplies for R&D, prototypes for field trials and pilot sites, and travel and living costs for volunteers overseas. 

All gifts are tax-deductible.

All aim for high-impact benefits. 

LE is all-volunteer: shop smiths, programmers, and curriculum developers, high school and college student volunteers are responsible for all that LE has to offer.

Partners are essential to making Looma practical. We seek and license partners to make and improve equipment and software, distribute and maintain the systems, develop content, and improve user interface.
