What has been the impact of your solution to date?
What is your projected impact over the next 1-3 years?
A recent study shows that approximately 600'000 pupils / year take tutoring classes in Romania. We assume that in the following 3 years we will get 1% of this market - meaning 6'000 students that will become clients of the social enterprise, some of them registering for multiple fields. In addition to this, we will be able to grant 100 scholarships / year to children from low income families that cannot pay the fees.
What barriers might hinder the success of your project? How do you plan to overcome them?
Some children might not have access to personal computers. In time, we plan to develop a technology project to connect IT distributors to children in poor communities in order to provide them access to technology.
Another barrier could be lack of trust in the efficiency of online tutoring as a teaching method. We will overcome this through a smart communication strategy focused on the quality of the teachers and on demonstrations of how the tutoring works. We will also have tutorials (video) on the website.
