Ginseng is a social venture. That means we measure our success in more than dollars. Our mission is "to provide learners around the world with access to online language instruction of the highest quality." For many, that "access" is limited by financial limitations. That's why Ginseng commits 10% of our class slots to those in need, free of charge. That means for every 10 students studying, one of those pays nothing.

And 10% is just our modest start. By 2020, our goal is to be offering 50% of slots for free.

How does it work?

Ginseng partners with local nonprofits who work directly with underserved communities. Those nonprofits help us to connect with those most in need. We then register those students for free and they join our classes. All students receive donated textbooks and get the exact same classes as paying students. That is Ginseng Impact.
