Mission Statement

Jara provides emergency education to impoverished and disaster-affected communities around the world through the Jara Unit.

Description

We are currently building the Jara Unit, a personal handheld device that can be used anywhere, anytime, without requiring access to infrastructure. Jara empowers people to rebuild their communities and continue their education, despite their circumstance.

Jara aims to empower all individuals to attain quality education without losing cultural roots. "Jara," in fact, means "root" in the Nepali language; our primary focus is Nepal. The 2015 earthquake in Nepal displaced many citizens and schools were torn down.
