How We Started
Edthena was born from on-the-ground experience with challenges accessing and providing the right types of support at the right times. As an organization, we are rooted in the perspectives of being an educator. This informs everything we do from feature design to client partnerships. We fundamentally believe that technology can and should play a part in affecting positive change in the education system.
