Private people supporting underprivileged kids, students, and/or families


Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

Many children in Europe are living in poverty. On the other hand readiness to help exists in large amounts. But people willing to support others need transparency. This leads to the idea of a platform where both sides can registrate. If Dániel from Tiszafüred(HU) cannot afford a new schoolbag, maybe Mrs. Müller from Mannheim(D) can assist him. All private data shall, of course, be protected. Help should be mainly provided through objects, not through money.

Where will your idea take place?

Underprivileged regions in Hungary and other parts of Europe.

Why does Europe need your idea?

Children poverty, families living in poverty, inequality of chances, no access to school materials, to good education, and to future success.

What is your impact?

Better chances for school kids/students from poor families, equality of chances, better access to educational tools, better chances to future success, better chances in underprivileged areas of Europe, people helping people all over Europe.

How do you get there?

Developing a safe online platform for children, students, families, schools, helpers, to registrate. Contracts with producers of school materials and other educational tools (maybe). Publicise and advertise the possibility to apply/register (in schools, social welfare offices, TV, radio) all over Europe.

What is your story?


Who are you doing it for?

Underprivileged children/students and their families.

What makes your idea stand apart?

It´s not about founding one more huge non-profit NGO trying to help from above, it´s about giving the chance to help back to people themselves. It´s like a bank for microcredis, but it´s for micro donations to school kids and students. It´s about giving development aid for underdeveloped or underprivileged European regions into the European peoples hands. Helping children in Europe learn is helping to build the European future.
