As part of its long-term corporate social responsibility initiative named Kids Academy, EveryMatrix has announced the opening of two new educational hubs for Romanian children.
The two new centres join three others in Bucharest, Romania, and are run in collaboration with the local Child Protective Services.
The services seek to provide children at risk with high-quality education by having them tutored by EveryMatrix’s full-time teachers in subjects like Computer Science, Math, and English.
Since its inception in 2015, Kids Academy has provided education to over 200 students between the ages of 8 and 15, with the aim of assisting students in continuing their studies into higher education despite socioeconomic disparity and preventing children at risk of dropping out.
Investing in education
According to EveryMatrix, the programme is based on the idea that investing in education will break down social barriers and improve the lives of young people in the long run by providing them with hard and soft skills in demand on the job market.
EveryMatrix’s group CEO, Ebbe Groes, says: “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.”
Since March 2020, when Romanian schools and educational centres moved to an online or hybrid structure, Kids Academy has continued to provide ongoing support to the beneficiaries in the form of online classes, live workshops held at EveryMatrix’s headquarters, and tutoring.
