Duolingo partners with CLEAR Global to develop inclusive language solutions

The world’s #1 language learning app supports inclusion with CLEAR Global 

Garden City, ID, USA, December 19, 2023 – CLEAR Global is excited to announce Duolingo’s donation to support language inclusion this holiday season. 

Duolingo, the world’s number one way to learn a language, shows its commitment to supporting vital language inclusion efforts with a generous gift to CLEAR Global and TWB.

“Language belongs to everyone. I’d like to express our profound admiration and appreciation for the work CLEAR Global and TWB are doing to bridge language gaps and support refugees worldwide.” 

CLEAR Global, the international nonprofit, and TWB, the world’s largest community of language volunteers, are committed to helping people get vital information and be heard, whatever language they speak. With Duolingo’s support, the organization and its nonprofit partners will be able to reach more marginalized communities with innovative, locally relevant language technology and information solutions. Together, we’re enabling more effective humanitarian response, sustainable progress, and equitable development. 

“We’d like to extend our thanks to the Duolingo team for this impactful donation, reaffirming their dedication to improving access and equity for all this holiday season. Donations like this will enable CLEAR Global to invest in more sustainable, accessible language and technology solutions and create tangible change in 2024.”

Every year, CLEAR Global launches its end-of-year campaign to raise awareness and funds for our vital work. This year’s theme, “Speak up for language inclusion,” celebrates the diversity of 7000 languages worldwide, and advocates for everyone’s right to access vital information, services, and opportunities. We are speaking up for marginalized communities, the people most affected by climate disasters and unequal access to health care. With this campaign, CLEAR Global is set to empower more people to make their voices heard.  

"We understand the immense potential of language in connecting people and empowering communities. Your team’s exceptional efforts in providing language services and capacity strengthening, reaching speakers of marginalized languages, and translating over 100 million words are remarkable achievements that resonate deeply with our mission at Duolingo."

In light of this, we are delighted to make this donation to CLEAR Global and TWB. We hope that our contribution can help support your organization’s goals and further empower your incredible work in making a difference in the lives of refugees and marginalized communities.”
