Serebra Works to Bridge Education Gap in Developing Nations Through $1 Million Contribution

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - Serebra Learning Corporation (TSX-V: SLC), a leading e-learning provider, today announced that it has contributed more than $1 million toward bridging the education gap in developing nations.

"By providing free online courses and exams for nearly 100,000 people who might otherwise not have the opportunity to undertake training, Serebra is providing people with the means to improve their skills and thereby their standard of living, regardless of geographic, economic and social barriers," said Ted Moorhouse, Serebra's chairman and CEO.

Inspired by the company's membership in the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), a non-partisan project of the William J. Clinton Foundation, Serebra made a commitment to provide free courses and exams through its easyLearning program, which offers accessible and affordable courses in subject areas such as desktop skills, IT and professional development. Course and exam recipients receive a PIN card that allows them to log in to a Web site and choose an exam topic. Each course or exam, when passed, also helps the recipient earn income through Serebra's online outsourcing platform, Serebra Connect (www.serebraconnect.com).

"Through our global skills program, easyLearning, we encourage people to utilize education to improve their standard of living and build a better life. e-learning is a convenient, affordable and accessible way to deliver training to developing nations where it is needed most," Moorhouse said. "However, training alone is not enough. Access to Serebra Connect provides work opportunities that might otherwise be hard to come by."

Moorhouse participates in the CGI as a representative of the education sector to generate innovative ideas and find new ways to help address the education gaps between developing and developed nations.
