Our impact map
atingi be used?
Our learners are based in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. atingi exclusively serves learners age 16+ who own an email account and have alphabetic literacy and therefore usually have completed basic education at minimum.
We look for partners who wish to use atingi to impact these learners through offering free-of-charge digital learning programs – whether by uploading content of their own or enrolling learners into our existing courses.
Partnership options with atingi
There are many areas in which you can partner with us, and we are always open to new and creative ways to partner. Our platform and large global partner network combined with GIZ’s international footing and activities allow for varied partnership formats to collaboratively fuel human capacity building and international development.
With our most popular partnership, you can create and host your e-learning courses on atingi, 100% free-of-charge. Upload or create courses with our inbuilt authoring tools and make them publicly accessible to our growing user base – or keep them in a private course room.
Promote atingi’s courses to your beneficiaries and networks so that they can benefit from them – the more people are reached, the bigger the impact! If you reach more than 5,000 learners with your campaign, we feature your course on our website.
You can endorse courses by adding your logo to our certificates. This promotes your organisation to a relevant audience and increases the value of the certificate for the learner. Simply select the courses or topics you wish to support and be associated with.
Do you already have an existing e-learning platform? Connect your platform to the atingi platform via APIs to display either platform’s course portfolio on the other one and leverage our growing learner base to supercharge your content’s outreach.
If you are an infrastructural provider (fixed broadband or mobile internet) but lack relevant content to offer to your beneficiaries to engage them with your service, we can add the atingi platform and content onto your infrastructure.
If you are a job platform or an employer, we collaboratively design paths of graduates from your preferred courses to your website or HR department.

Why does atingi provide a platform for free?
Our role as a digital learning platform developed by the German Development Cooperation is to provide a public good that reduces barriers to capacity building across the Global South.
Designing, setting up and maintaining a learning management system from scratch is costly, complex, time-consuming and drains scarce resources in non-profit projects from areas much more crucial for digital learning impact. Oftentimes, a LMS is set up by international development projects specifically for their individual undertaking. Unfortunately, these projects often lack reach and communities of practice, leading to underperforming results.
We want to avoid reinventing the wheel, save resources and ensure impact by providing a free, state-of-the-art and sustainable platform that our partners can leverage for their international development projects.
Many project-specific LMS are abandoned after some time due to government changes or depletion of maintenance resources, resulting in instability and a negative learner experience. atingi meanwhile is here to stay.
Based on the Principles for Digital Development, our platform is designed for scale, encourages the exchange and adaptation of existing digital learning resources, protects user data, most of its content is openly licensed, and certifications are aligned to open standards. It is also recognized as the standard tool for digital learning within GIZ and throughout German development cooperation.
We intend to reach millions of learners by 2025 and make culturally relevant, SDG-advancing courses – from environmental protection to employability, gender equality to digital skills, and so much more – accessible 100% for free!
