Giving communities the tools to thrive
Projects For All is a non-profit organisation, based in the UK and US. We gave ourselves the mission to empower communities facing human rights challenges by providing life-changing support and partnership, guided by respect, trust and community ownership. Every project we create is open source and designed to be owned and operated by the community, thus allowing its people to be the drivers of their own progression.

How a TED Talk by Sugata Mitra inspired a school in the cloud for Africa, and beyond…
Three and a half years ago, Katrin Macmillan, Founder and CEO of Projects For All, watched the TED Prize 2013 talk by Sugata Mitra, Professor of Educational Technology at Newcastle University, in which he discussed his ‘Hole in the Wall’ research project and stated his ambition to build a ‘school in the cloud’. He wanted to find out if children who have little or no access to education could educate themselves, simply by having access to the Internet. His TED talk became the inspiration to start Project Hello World.
Watch Sugata Mitra and Katrin Macmillan talk about self-organised learning, Hello World and the Hello Hubs, outdoor solar-powered Internet kiosks that bring connectivity and education to children—and adults—in remote and marginalised communities.
