What happens when three students volunteer because they care?

Caring Education is a company started by three VRG students ce– Alexander Kamal, Daniel Sternegard, and Thor Åhlgren.

alexander thor danielCaring Education is a homework help service for students in lower secondary schools.  The special thing about this company is that all proceeds collected are donated directly to UNICEF.

It works like this:  VRG students tutor at a neighboring compulsory school on Monday afternoons.  All students are welcome to join.  Instead of paying for this service, families are asked to make a donation to this important cause . . .

KL:  Where did this idea come from?  

Students:  This past summer, we volunteered in Ubud at a local school.  There, we saw first-hand what a difference education can make.  “We realized how fortunate we are.”  Since we came back, we have been trying to find a way to continue to support important developments there – our answer:  Caring Education.
