Education — A fundamental human right and yet many children around the world do not have access to basic education or the opportunity to learn, especially if they live in poverty.
The United Nations estimates that there are over 262 million children and young adults around the world that do not have access to education. An appalling fact if you consider the technological advancements we have living in the 21st century. It got us thinking about how we can help make a difference and structure our business to transform lives and effect real change. We didn’t just want to be a business that makes money, we wanted to be a business that solves the world’s problems.
We looked at other businesses such as ‘TOMS Shoes’ and ‘This Bar Saves Lives’ and took inspiration from social entrepreneurs such as Bill Drayton and Muhammad Yunus who have successfully effected change through social entrepreneurship. However, we felt that something was lacking and we knew we had to go one step further. An ancient Chinese proverb kept resonating in our minds — “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”
Through our years of experience in education, we have learned that you can change lives gradually — small but incremental changes can have a big impact on living a happier, successful and more fulfilling life. Education has the power to end poverty, improve health and wellbeing, develop societies, grow economies, end malnutrition and even combat climate change.
We made it our mission to connect all people to learning opportunities that contribute to happier, more fulfilled lives.
