EveryMatrix has launched two new educational hubs for Romanian children as part of its long-term CSR project, Kids Academy.
The two new centres add to the existing three in Bucharest, Romania, and are operated in partnership with the local Child Protective Services.
The programmes provide access to high-quality education for children at social risk. The kids are tutored by EveryMatrix’s full-time teachers in disciplines such as Computer Science, Maths, and English.
Since launching in 2015, Kids Academy has provided access to quality education for over 200 pupils between the ages of 8 and 15.
Kids Academy’s mission is to help pupils continue their studies into higher education despite social inequality and prevent children at risk to drop out of school.
At the very least, the programme ensures basic computer literacy, which typically is not provided in their homes or schools. The programme is operated under the strong belief that investment in education can break social barriers and improve kids’ lives in the long-term by equipping them with hard and soft skills requested on the job market.
Ebbe Groes, Group CEO of EveryMatrix, commented: “We have been dedicated to supporting educational causes since 2015. Kids Academy is a project I value very much and seeing the impact it had over the years makes our team here very happy.
“The activity in the two new centres will make it possible to aid even more children. Our teachers provide much-needed support and help the pupils have better paths in life.”
