Education is accessible to everyone, everywhere to those who really want it 🚀

I grew up in an underdeveloped country and life there is totally different compared to developed countries. Many people are praying for the things that kids in advanced countries take for granted. I knew from the childhood that getting a quality education was the key in creating a decent life for myself. I strived and worked hard for it, but I faced many challenges along the way simply because I lacked the resources and money to educate myself. Access to a qualitative formal education in poor countries is mostly available to privileged people.

I was lucky as I came across with one of the nonprofit organizations that have partnered up with ( : the unique online education platform that focuses on the world’s poorest countries with the goal of improving their livelihoods. I have an unlimited access to their library of online courses since then and I’ve dedicated most of my free time to learn as much as I could. As a result, I’ve improved my English to the level where I was able to take a TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and enter an ‘American University of Central Asia’ (if not them, I wouldn’t be able to write this post).

I had two things in mind by posting this message here. One, if you have the desire to improve your life by educating yourself, you can always find ways to do so (no matter where you live and no matter what your circumstances are). Two, I wanted to spread the message to those who might be looking for ways to enhance their skills and improve their competence and employability but don’t know how and where to start.

Note: Look for non-profit organizations such as Develop Africa, Wiser Girls, YUM Indonesia and Evolvin Women and you’ll be able to get free access to great educational resources with Cudoo as I did. Good luck!
