14 Years of Fighting Education Inequality
Alison was founded in 2007 with the mission of guaranteeing that every human on the planet should have access to free quality education. Since then, we've been committed to maximising access to education and skills training across the globe.
Our commitment is founded on our belief that education is the key to empowerment. By giving people access to free education, we're giving them the tools to change their lives.
14 Years of Hard Work - Ours and Yours
As we celebrate 14 years of fighting education inequality, we'd like to take the opportunity to celebrate with the people who have Empowered us. Your support has enabled us to reach 19 million learners, 3 million graduates across 195 countries.
Fourteen might seem like a small number compared to 19 million, but the last 14 years have been full of hard work, teamwork, our work and your work. While we're proud and excited to have reached this milestone, we know that the real success story behind those 14 years is Yours.
Empowered by Millions
Alson is growing every year, more so in the last twelve months than ever before. As we grow, so does our responsibility to democratise education, lead the education revolution and break down educational barriers.
We remain as committed to that responsibility as we were in 2007.
Thank You From Our CEO & Founder
On the occasion of our 14th birthday, I'd like to offer a heartfelt thanks to all of our Learners. By choosing to empower yourself with our free online courses, your success has been our success, and vice-versa. The will to thrive that we see in our students, and the success stories they share with us, are a constant source of inspiration and motivation to us here at Alison.
The last twelve months have been challenging times for everyone. Our sense of duty to our Learners prompted us to launch our Coronavirus course to provide people worldwide with important information on coronavirus. We then reached out to our community of Learners in search of volunteers to translate the course into as many languages as possible to make sure no one was excluded from potentially life-saving information.
Hundreds of our Learners from all over the world, motivated by a sense of community and solidarity, volunteered their time and language skills to help translate the course into over 60 languages. On the strength of this incredible support, Alison won the EESC Civil Solidarity Prize, an accolade we share with all of our volunteers.
The compassion and dedication of our Learners, and their belief in Alison's project of providing free quality education to everyone the world over, was humbling. It was also the best birthday present we could have asked for!
For this and so much else over the last 14 years, I'd like to thank all of our Learners.
Yours in free education,
