Millions of school-age students in America live in poverty. You don’t have to teach in a high-end urban area or a rural region to teach students who are from a poor family.
Economically disadvantaged students sometimes have a difficult time with succeeding in school. One of the most unfortunate results of their economic struggles is that students often drop out of school, or choose a low waged job to afford the luxuries they have been denied instead of an education.
At Knodemy, we believe that education should know no boundaries. We believe in educateONE to transform lives. Thus, we embarked on the educateONE campaign: for a total of 50 shares (of educateONE posts) on Facebook, we promised to deliver a lesson to children in undeserved areas. With the help of all of our fans, we were able to not only meet, but exceed our campaign goals.
Here are the results:
Testimonial 1: “The tutor explained very well, he was very thorough walking us through the problem. I really liked that he drew the geometrical figures for us to see on the whiteboard.” – Lorena
Testimonial 2: “I liked it. He didn’t see me, but I could see him, and that made me feel more comfortable to ask him a question or to have it explained again. He explained the concept differently than my teacher but I got it.” – Stephania
Testimonial 3: “It was cool (esta bien chido!) the way he drew the picture of the problem on the whiteboard. Interesting.” – Jose
