Tugann Kinia Camara Ireland, TechSpace, agus cláir de chuid Suas Educational Development le chéile.
Creidimid gur réiteach é oideachas ar easpa comhionannais, agus go gcruthaíonn sé deiseanna do ghasúir agus daoine óga, agus creidimid gur trí bheith ag obair as lámha a chéile gur féidir linn an sprioc sin a bhaint amach.
Scéal traidisiúnta é míbhuntáiste oideachais, neamhionannas sóisialta a bhfuil deacracht bhreise anois ag baint leis. Le gairmeacha beatha nua, teicneolaíocht nua, agus bealaí nua le dul i mbun oibre, tá scoilt nua againn. Mura bhfuil dea-shampla agat ó do mhuintir nó comhphobal i dtaobh an réimse leathain post a réitíonn don saol amach rompu tú, conas atá tú in ann dul i ngleic leis na deiseanna seo?
Cruthaíonn Kinia deiseanna do dhaoine óga. Creidimid gur infheistíocht in athrú inbhuanaithe é oideachasóirí a chumhachtú chun oideachas a chur ar a gcuid daltaí agus iad a spreagadh, agus go gcruthaíonn an fhoghlaim fíordheiseanna agus atá in ann saol a athrú. Gan teacht air seo, fágfar leanaí agus daoine óga thíos leis.
Táimid lách, tiomanta agus is comhpháirtíocht muid.
Tá réimse taithí ag ár bhfoireann sa teagasc, in obair óige agus i bhforbairt, i dteicneolaíocht agus i gcruthaitheacht.
