According to the United Nations, there are over 836 million living in extreme poverty around the world and 7% of those are children.
There are also many people, both local and international, who are willing to help solve this problem but need information and resources.
Educare – a website and a mobile app that helps connect volunteers with community leaders or non-profit organizations in order to promote education related projects in the developing world.
With the help of this website and mobile app, volunteers can search for opportunities, while NGOs and community leaders can post their projects in one location.
Educare hopes that many children who can’t otherwise go to school on a traditional method, can somehow get another form of education through projects that are powered by volunteers, non-profit organizations and community leaders.
Educare is a final thesis project for York University/Sheridan College Design (YSDN) program.
