About The Rumie Initiative
6th Floor, 10 Dundas St E., Toronto, Ontario M5B 2G9, CA
At Rumie, we create innovative technologies to bring down the barriers to learning, so that everyone can reach their potential.
Rumie is an award-winning technology nonprofit, reducing barriers to learning for the world's most vulnerable. We work with the world's most trusted organizations to create, organize & distribute free, digital microlearning (called Bytes) on 21st Century Skills. Our mobile-first platform supports learners from underserved communities in 30+ countries, equipping them with the skills they need to thrive in our increasingly uncertain world.

How does Rumie work?
Our individual & corporate volunteers create Bytes on one (or more) learning categories.
We organize & publish the Bytes onto our platform, Rumie-Learn (Netflix for Learning).
Our partners distribute Rumie-Learn, help us reach learners at scale & amplify our impact.
We want to hear from you! If you are working at a company, we'd love to explore how we can bring Rumie to you & set real goals around our shared impact. We've partnered with Fortune 1000s like LoyaltyOne & Amazon to transform their employees' insights into Bytes, for those with the least access but most to gain. If you want to independently contribute, send us a note & we'll reach out when it opens up.
