veryMatrix has announced the launch of two new educational hubs for Romanian children as a part of its long-term CSR project Kids Academy.
Including the previously opened three sites, all five educational centers in Bucharest, Romania are operated in partnership with the local Child Protective Services. The programs provide access to education for children at social risk. The kids are tutored in disciplines such as Computer Science, Math and English by EveryMatrix’s full-time teachers.
Since launching in 2015, Kids Academy has provided access to 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. The program is operated under the 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, 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 and tutoring held at EveryMatrix’s headquarters since March 2020 when the schools and educational centres in Romania transitioned to an online or hybrid system.
Kids Academy’s activity is fully compliant with governmental public health policies for COVID-19 to keep both pupils and teachers safe, the company described in a press release.
