Skoolbo is launched in Australia in collaboration with Early Start and Save the Children
Early Start is the University of Wollongong’s $44 million transformational project that aims to create and enrich life opportunities for young Australians from birth - 12 years. It endeavours to drive real social change through world class teaching programs that utilise 21st century technologies to connect regional and remote communities.
Early Start is the most exciting academic and community engagement project taking place in Australia. From the simple premise "every child deserves the best possible start to life" ,we are developing the most sophisticated teaching, research and community engagement initiative in higher education.

Save the Children is one of Australia’s largest aid and development agencies dedicated to helping children.With the generosity of thousands of Australians, we work hard to protect children from harm and help them access quality education and health services.
We have more than 90 years’ experience and work in 120 countries around the world, including Australia.One of our key focuses is education because we know it can change a child’s life. Education is a pathway out of poverty for many children because it gives them a chance to gain valuable knowledge and skills.
Every year, we reach millions of children through our education programs. We work in places like Uruzgan Province in Afghanistan, where eight of 10 children don’t go to school. In 2013, we taught 4,000 children in Uruzgan how to read and write.
