We run three main activities aimed to the advancement of education in Tunisia
Consists in offering scholarships to deprived students in Tunisia. Each sponsored student benefits from the support of an appointed mentor who follows closely the progress of the student throughout the whole academic year and ensures help and support are provided whenever needed.
School Kit Program
At the start of each school year, SchoolMe collects lists of deprived students from schools located in disadvantaged areas in Tunisia and provides a full school bag equipped with all the books and stationary needed for the whole year to help the student start the academic year in the best conditions.
Books’ Donation Program
Each year, thousands of children in Tunisia are unable to read because of the lack of books. Schools in deprived areas struggle to provide books despite the best efforts in their communities. Through the Book’s Donation Program, SchoolMe collects books from British and French Schools in the UK to donate them to Schools in Tunisia.
As more funds become available, additional programs related to the advancement of education in Tunisia will be added to the list of programs sponsored by SchoolMe.
Once a man was walking along a beach. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. Off in the distance he could see a person going back and forth between the surf's edge and the beach. Back and forth this person went. As the man approached he could see that there were hundreds of starfish stranded on the sand as the result of the natural action of the tide.
The man was stuck by the apparent futility of the task. There were far too many starfish. Many of them were sure to perish. As he approached the person continued the task of picking up starfish one by one and throwing them into the surf.
As he came up to the person he said, "You must be crazy. There are thousands of miles of beach covered with starfish. You can't possibly make a difference." The person looked at the man. He then stooped down and picked up one more starfish and threw it back into the ocean. He turned back to the man and said, "It sure made a difference to that one!"
