Lyfta was founded by award-winning filmmaker couple Serdar Ferit and Paulina Tervo in 2016, with the desire to inspire future generations to make a positive impact in the world. Lyfta’s platform was created to support teachers in tackling complex themes and topics with the best tools to introduce different global phenomena in the classroom. Lyfta is available to primary and secondary schools in the UK and Finland in English, Finnish and Swedish.

Lyfta is currently used in over 200 schools in the UK and Finland. Our mission is to have an immersive story from every single country in the world by 2020 on our platform, accessible to a global audience.
