Partnering with Brothers For All is an opportunity for Voxy to give an underserved group access to its unique, personalized cloud-based learning platform
Brothers For All is a South African non-profit dedicated to supplying educational support to ex-inmates of the South African prison system, as well as to at-risk youth in the community. Its educational program is centered on computer programming, includes English instruction as well. The goal of Brothers For All is to give participants in its program life skills they can use to pursue careers in the contemporary digital world.
Partnering with Brothers For All is an opportunity for Voxy to give an underserved group access to its unique, personalized cloudbased learning platform. Voxy is the only provider of language software that adapts to the needs of an individual student in real-time, supplying content tailored to each learner. It is an effective tool for language learners, which, when combined with classes on coding, gives students at Brothers For All a strong skillset for the future.
“Giving at-risk youth and ex-offenders coding skills is a powerful first step on the path out of poverty and crime”, said Robyn Scott, co-founder of Brothers for All. “But to fully leverage these skills – to learn from global mentors, to win top jobs, to start good businesses – most of our students also need to improve their English language skills. Communication is key to the problem solving and creative collaboration which programming teams and careers demand, and key also to inspiring others, which lies at the heart of the Brothers for All model. Voxy is an inspiring way to learn. In 2015 we will launch coding training inside South Africa’s prisons and we look forward to taking Voxy with us, inside.”
Voxy is excited to have contributed to the efforts undertaken by the Brothers For All Foundation, and pleased to donate its learning platform to the students at the Langa Center. The coming year will see Voxy supporting and contributing to more initiatives, like this one with Brothers For All, in hopes of helping underserved communities acquire the powerful skill of communication.
