Good Ideas Where They Are Needed Most.

We help people advance liberty, science, and reason in repressive societies.

Increasing access to this information opens minds, promotes free inquiry and awards greater freedom to those that need it most.

Yet, for every hundred books and Wikipedia articles available in English, there is just one in Arabic.

We are working to change that since we started in 2017.

The greatest threat to extremism isn't drones firing missiles, but girls reading books.

The Taliban have banned girls from going to school in Afghanistan.
