The creators of Dentist Bird are partnering with educational non-profit organizations to reach students in underserved communities where access to educational technology is limited. We are committed to helping bridge the digital divide in the US and around the world.
We Care Foundation
Proceeds from sales of Dentist Bird have been donated to We-Care to support its literacy work during the 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak in Liberia.
We-Care is an educational non-profit organization that trains teachers on strategies to improve reading and writing, publishes children’s books, and runs lending libraries in schools and economically challenged communities throughout Liberia. To date, it has trained over 900 teachers and impacted the lives of more than 20,000 students.
Curious Learning Project
As a content partner, Dentist Bird is being deployed on educational tablets distributed by the Curious Learning Project Uganda, South Africa, Ethiopia, as well as rural Georgia and Alabama.
The Global Literacy Project pioneered the Curious Learning System, a nonprofit founded to ensure every child receives an education—regardless of resources or location. Led by experts from MIT, Tufts and Georgia State University, the Global Literacy Project applies advances in science and technology in its quest to lift millions out of poverty and into global citizenship.
The Rumie Initiative
Dentist Bird was loaded onto 500+ Rumie tablets that were distributed to educational partners in Liberia and Sierra Leone
The Rumie Initiative is a non-profit organization on a mission to bring free digital educational content to the world’s underprivileged children. Preloaded with high-quality educational textbooks, videos and games tailored to a child’s age and curriculum, Rumie Tablets are full, interactive digital libraries that cost less than the average textbook. Everything can be used offline, making it a portable library that students can use anywhere in the world.
