Helping 100M students under ten learn how to read and write.

Hey! I’m Zayn Patel, and I care about unlocking human potential, especially for kids in developing countries. I was a finalist in Schmidt Futures global learning tools competition. I’ve worked with the UN to build a digital literacy curriculum for women in rural Senegal. I also created a platform to help high school students select colleges based on social fit instead of our news and world reports ranking.
