Avallain is a Social Enterprise based in Switzerland and Kenya. Experts in E-Learning and E-publishing, we are using ICT in Education to achieve a positive impact on human development. Our objective is to create solutions that develop the Internet as a tool for inclusion rather than an accelerating agent of the digital divide. At Avallain, we create software solutions which can be individually tailored to your needs. These systems provide you with the ICT support required to improve learning and lives around the world.
Over the last decade Avallain engineered solutions have reached several million users including our flagship systems for Basic Skills in Germany, Ireland and New Zealand and our Language Learning Systems such as the Macmillan English Campus, used around the globe since 2003.
Avallain has a carbon neutral policy for all its services. As part of this we participate in large scale tree planting initiatives in Europe and Africa. We also support a number of worthwhile projects including the Frankfurt Book Fair Literacy Campaign, the One Laptop Per Child foundation, KEWWEDO, the Gentiana Primary School and the Tumaini Secondary School.
