to educate a student in the developing world
What We Found
Education is Key
“Education is the most powerful weapon in which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela. Need we say anymore?
But in the Developing World there are many Barriers to Education
In poor and marginalised parts of the world there are many barriers to education. These barriers prevent individuals from accessing education which is the necessary foundation to progress in life.
Leaving Over One Billion People Illiterate
According to the United Nations, 15% of the world’s adult population are illiterate. That’s over one billion people, in 2020, who haven’t had access to a quality education and as a result are more likely to remain trapped in the vicious cycle of poverty.
This is Largely due to a Lack of Learning Material
In poor and marginalised parts of the world there are many barriers to education. For example, In Cameroon one textbook is shared between twelve children. These barriers prevent individuals from accessing education which is the necessary foundation to progress in life.
So how do we Help? Currently Humans can only Donate Physical Resources
But this Process isn't really Efficient
Shipping books to developing parts of the world is amazing but it can be very costly and can take almost six months to get there, plus once the books arrive they typically become worn, especially in hotter climates.
So we Created #DonateADoc, a BRAND NEW Method of Charitable Aid
#DonateADoc enables educators, content creators and those with valuable digital educational material to donate their learning material. Bringing quality, digital educational material to those who need it most.
And POD, our Solar-Powered Projector, Displays the Donated Content to a Classroom in Need!
In rural parts of the world, the neccessary hardware to access digital education can be a challenge, that’s why we designed a low-cost, durable, solar-powered projector named POD. POD displays the donated documents offline and off-grid where mains connectivity and internet are uncommon.
