Global Competence Online Project
Online program for kids of 10 to 14 years old

What is the Global Competence Online Project?
It's an online course that serves as a platform for your kids to solve a world issue - lack of quality education - while acquiring key competencies and skills necessary for the future success
Throughout the course students learn how to use their resources - knowledge, skills, creativity - to design an educational game for students that do not have enough resources, and thus motivation, to study well. This game is later shared for free with schools and communities in Uganda, rural China, and other countries.
