“COCO is looking forward to collaborating with mycloudcoach to improve the quality of education in partner schools in rural East Africa. In these schools, accessing learning resources is difficult and expensive, which hinders lesson planning and leaves staff and teachers without the information needed for effective learning. The idea will transform education for schools in the Global South. mycloudcoach’s innovative technological design and passion for bringing opportunity to marginalised students are what makes the organisation unique, and we are sure that they will change the lives of thousands with their exciting programme.”
DONATE A DOC
Why do we exist?
We understand that there is a shortage of learning material in poor and remote parts of the world. This acts as a significant barrier to learning. We also understand that currently, to solve this issue, as human beings we donate physical resources such as textbooks, however, they quickly become worn, especially in hotter climates.
We are proposing a new method of charitable aid to help combat the shortage; the donation of digital educational documents. We are calling this social movement #donateadoc. Our goal is to allow teachers, educators and those with valuable digital learning to be able to give their valuable learning content to a great cause – to expand their reach and empower those who otherwise would be unable to access this material. And so, Donate A Doc was born.
