EveryMatrix has unveiled the launch of two new educational hubs for Romanian children as a part of its long-term corporate social responsibility project titled Kids Academy.
The two centres add to the existing three in Bucharest, Romania, and are operated in partnership with the local Child Protective Services.
The programs aim to provide access to high-quality education for children at social risk, with children tutored by EveryMatrix’s full-time teachers in disciplines such as Computer Science, Maths, and English.
Since launching in 2015, Kids Academy, whose mission is to help pupils continue their studies into higher education despite social inequality and prevent children at risk to drop out of school, has provided access to education for over 200 pupils between the ages of 8 and 15.
The program, says EveryMatrix, is operated under the belief that investment in education can break social barriers and improve youngsters’ lives in the long-term by equipping them with hard and soft skills requested on the job market.
Ebbe Groes, group CEO of EveryMatrix, comments: “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.”
Kids Academy had continued to provide ongoing support to the beneficiaries, in the form of online classes, live workshops held at EveryMatrix’s headquarters, and tutoring, since March 2020 when the schools and educational centres in Romania transitioned to an online or hybrid system.
