The Ann foundation is a volunteer organization dedicated to empowering children & youth with physical disabilities in impoverished regions of countries like India, Egypt and Cameroon. Through a network of volunteers located across the globe, the organization provides free English and computer literacy classes via Skype. Through its various projects, the foundation has helped nearly 2000 children across these countries by providing them the skills and tools necessary to realize their potential.
Most of the children & youth living in rural areas do not have access to quality education. Schools do not adequately provide English language and computer skills that are critical for the 21st century workforce. Schools face many challenges like lack of funds, shortage of trained teachers and poor infrastructure. There is a need to give children from these regions access to quality English and computer education.
The foundation, under its various projects, partners with local NGOs to identify educational needs of children. We work together towards providing the necessary English language and computer skills required by the students to gain employment and lead a productive life. Ann foundation provides English, conducting computer literacy classes and improving their soft skills through personality development classes. Our volunteers from across the globe conduct these classes through Skype.
The various projects run by the foundation will help children achieve to their maximum potential irrespective of their physical, emotional and social barriers. Ann Foundation aims to empower these children in a way that they become employable and hence self-reliant.
Citizens who have English and computer knowledge have better economic opportunities. We use the power of technology to provide these basic skills to children in economic and educational disadvantage. - Ann Moideen, Founder and CEO
