About Imagine Worldwide

Imagine Worldwide Ltd is a subsidiary of Imagine Worldwide, is a California-based (United States) nonprofit organization. Imagine exists to demonstrate that children with personalized technology in their hands can become literate and numerate with little or no adult instruction. More than 250 million children and youth worldwide do not have access to school. And hundreds of millions more
go to school but never learn to read or write. We believe in working with schools and communities to address these seemingly intractable problems.

We are partnering with organizations across the globe to implement tablet-based learning solutions. We are continuously building evidence on what works, why, and under what conditions. We use data to continuously improve content, approach, and implementation. Then we provide tools, expertise, capital, and a network to enhance the ability to scale. We envision a world where all children have access to opportunity. Through rigorous implementation of tablet-based learning solutions in areas
with few alternatives, we continue to open up limitless possibilities for all children.

Imagine Worldwide Ltd has partnered with the Ministry of Education, Government of Malawi, and other partners to scale up nationally an innovative Edtech program that is focused on improving literacy and numeracy skills among learners in standards 1-4 in all public primary schools
in Malawi. To support this ambitious program, Imagine Worldwide Ltd seeks to engage a Logistics Manager to join a team to support the Ministry of Education and other implementation partners in the successful roll out of the program.
