Our platform is developed for mainly high school and University students. To get all the support and information regarding the higher learning through media contents and life experiences.
We want to see the future generations making more informed decisions about their future. Improving the pass and graduation rate in Universities and seizing the gap to the utmost minimum.

In this program they got mentored by University students, career guidance and exposure to the university environment.We then asked ourselves how can this program reach all the high school learners instead of only 100?
