BOKS is a set of classes designed to help lift communities out of poverty. It involves the cumulative knowledge of doctors, nutritionists and agricultural experts who have worked among the world's poor, and pooling that information into a practical, and easy-to-use video curriculum.

We thank ISOM.org for granting Labdoo the right to freely distribute this curriculum with the Labdoo laptops. You can watch a brief class introductory on the video below:

You may download the zip file of the classes to be installed in your Labdoo laptops; however, please do not distribute this class material otherwise without prior consents from ISOM.org directly in order to avoid violating copyright laws.

We have BOKS in 4 different languages: English, Spanish, Chinese and Swahili.

Some of the classes combine Christian teachings to help people overcome certain physical challenges; we have added a (C) in front of those classes. Please respect the laptop recipient school's cultural background and install the classes with care. Thank you!
