Our Mission

CALEC is committed to encouraging multilingualism and enhancing literacy through our online book platform. Our goal is to increase bilingualism and biliteracy rates by providing easy access to multilingual books.

We focus on supporting underserved schools and communities by offering free access to our resources, particularly those emphasizing language and bilingual education.

Schools that are not under the underserved category can join the platform for a nominal license fee.

Our platform is currently in beta testing with selected schools in Ivory Coast, Senegal, France, and the United States. We aim to expand our reach globally, contingent on funding availability.
