Benetech is a nonprofit that empowers communities with software for social good.
Our work transforms how people with disabilities read and learn, makes it safer for human rights defenders to pursue truth and justice, and connects people to the services they need to live and prosper. We’re constantly pursuing the next big social impact. Our mission is to empower communities with software for social good. We achieve our mission by uniting two worlds: the social sector and Silicon Valley. We serve as a bridge between the social sector and Silicon Valley by working closely with both communities to identify needs and software solutions that can drive positive social change.
In the area of education, we endeavor to make learning accessible and inclusive to all people, including those with learning differences or disabilities. Through initiatives like Bookshare, the world’s largest ebook library for people with blindness, dyslexia, and other reading barriers, we make it easier to read with ebooks in accessible formats and make it possible for people with disabilities to pursue education, gain employment, and enjoy leisure reading.
