Our Philosophy: Education is a Duty

We do not consider education as a business, but as a duty to ourselves, our planet and our own interests in surviving and preferably living a good life. Education should be broadly affordable and accessible while keeping a high quality. By reducing bureaucracy to a minimum and optimally automating processes, which do not need human intervention, and by co-operating with approved education providers, we have succeeded in making our programs most affordable. By using on-line text books, on-line tests, locally held proficiency verifications, video-streaming lectures and video conferencing, we have succeeded in making our programs broadly accessible. By employing highly competent professionals with the primary interest of making a difference rather than making a career, we have succeeded in creating high quality programs.

Our Approach: Respect and Understanding

“We humans have never been able to contemplate a thing without changing it; and yet the most important must be to understand, accept and respect other living beings independently of their species and race.” (Roger Abrantes in Evolution).
