Support this digital literacy campaign to raise $20,000 fund for underprivileged children
Khud.org has initiated a campaign to raise $20,000 fund for digital education of underprivileged children. The platform is offering several packages to donors. From sponsoring a child for one digital class in just $45 to raising $3000 funds to build two digital labs, the platform is focused on digital learning of underprivileged children in every which way possible.
The children in Khud programs lack access to technology but are very curious and eager to learn new skills. This curiosity motivates them to make the most of the Schools’ EdTech programs and take giant steps towards digital literacy. Such exposure also allows the children to self-learn in other more advanced areas and take themselves and their families out of poverty.
To support this cause, Khud has launched a partial funding campaign on LaunchGood that will collect all funds raised before May 30, 2019, 11:45 PM. With just 13 supporters, the campaign has so far raised funds of around $4,395 (as of writing) and the platform still has 16 days to complete its target. Donors can select any giving levels by choosing from the options here.
Khud initiative was founded four years ago and it now offers designed curricula for various digital subjects such as Introduction to Computer: learning how to type and operate a computer; Presentation and Storytelling: learning new topics (e.g. Artificial Intelligence) and developing a presentation; Video Editing: creating and editing videos (this can easily lead to vocational work as emphasis on video content is ever increasing) and Software Programming (starting with Scratch and moving onto Python).
During the last three years, Khud has established four urban, rural and special education schools, empowered over 250 students with interactive learning skills and also launched various other educational programs including Girls Vocational Program.
The platform aims to make its digital curricula public so that “children from even the remotest of areas can benefit”. The vision of this non-profit initiative of 2019 is to produce over 500 graduates from their digital program.
