“One of the responsibilities as teammates–the theme number one–is health first, always. It’s physical health, spiritual health, mental health, all types of health come first. And by having this as a value, it gives the teammates space to be human.”
Soraya Fouladi is the Founder & CEO of Jara – closing the digital divide by building the distance learning solution for K-12 students in low-power and low-internet communities globally.
Soraya Fouladi is an international entrepreneur, leading a multi-national team to bring quality education to children in under-resourced communities. An electrical engineer by training, Soraya invented the Jara Unit, a solar and crank-powered education device that provides children offline access to curriculum-aligned educational content. The device enables learning anywhere, anytime and is a teaching tool for teachers in low-internet, low-power communities where ordinary tablets or smartphones do not work. Soraya and Jara are working to encourage widespread adoption of this innovative technology.
