2021 IMPACT REPORT
Empowering learners with skills for economic opportunity
By 2030, 90% of jobs worldwide will have a digital component but forecasts show that nearly 1 billion youth will not have the skills needed to access quality employment. Investing in both technology-assisted learning and teacher training programs is a powerful equalizer in promoting access to opportunity.
To bridge the global education divide, Team4Tech builds capacity for community-based nonprofit organizations (NPOs) around the world through pro bono technology consulting and grants, so that they can amplify their impact on teaching and learning.
“When I joined the Team4Tech family
in 2020, my life changed. I was grateful to have been a part of the initiative then and knew that If I never got to do anything else in life, I would have been glad that I had done that project.”
– Diana O., Solutions Architect,
AppD & Volunteer with The African SOUP
“Our partnership with Team4Tech has revolutionized our instructional practice and enabled us to develop a clear digital strategy for the future! The result has been a significant improvement in the quality of differentiated teaching and learning at LEAP.”

Empowering youth with skills for economic success
“Digital skills are increasingly important, in fact, critical for learners around the world to join the global workforce. I joined Team4Tech’s Board because I believe that the model Team4Tech deploys can have a powerful impact on learners; specifically by combining high-quality interactions between education nonprofits and corporate volunteers leading to meaningful skills. I’m proud that during Covid-19 we were able to expand our model and reach digitally without losing impact for learners in need of technology and training.”

A message from Team4Tech’s co-founders
When Team4Tech launched in 2013, we set a 10-year goal to improve the quality of education for 100,000 under-resourced learners around the world through technology solutions and training. In 2021, we surpassed our goal—two years early—by reaching more than 110,000 learners in 21 countries with opportunities to gain skills for a better future. We did this by delivering more than $15M in technology grants and services to 50+ nonprofit education partners, enabling them to become lighthouses in their regions and in turn build local and regional educational capacity.
As we celebrate this milestone, we recognize that the challenges faced by educators around the world have increased dramatically. Over the last 2 years, 1.6B students have been impacted by COVID school closures. In parallel, Team4Tech experienced a 10x increase in demand from educators and nonprofits needing support to help students learn remotely. We quickly mobilized our global community of corporate volunteers to consult virtually on digital solutions, create digital curriculum resources, and provide online training for teachers and students. We also launched a regional hub in Sub-Saharan Africa to provide more local support.
We are grateful to our donors who fund our technology grants and our corporate partners who support our nonprofit capacity-building with sponsorship and corporate volunteers. We couldn’t do it without you.
