Mission Statement

Strengthen basic education, provide scholarships to High School students to further their education, provide free tutoring f or Junior High students to encourage them to pass their High School entrance exam, provide employment opportunities for students so they can maintain enrollment in schools, provide snacks and materials to children who need them.

Description

Exponential Education tackles these three issues in one unique, multiplying program. What we do is take four High School stu dents, pay them a weekly stipend so that they can stay enrolled in school, and in return they each tutor three Junior High School students. Therefore four High School students are providing free tutoring to twelve Junior High School students, helping to bridge the gap in education and creating a greater High School entrance exam pass rate. At the end of twelve weeks, the best High School student tutor receives a scholarship for $300 USD, which pays for first year’s University tuition in both Ghana and India.

The crazy thing is that the entire program only costs $500 USD. Therefore, only $500 USD provides one High School student a scholarship for first year tuition to University, four High School students receive a weekly stipend to reduce financial burdens, and twelve Junior High School students receive free tutoring by older peers in their area who understand their culture, community and educational needs. Also, Exponential Education provides snacks and materials to every session for those who are unable to afford such basic amenities.
