Let's not let the Venezuelan government succeed in destroying quality education in Venezuela

Let's achieve that there is at least a space where free thinking can be allowed and where we can have where to nourish our brains.

Explain your project idea (2,000 characters)

My idea is based on the fact that the best professors from the best universities in Venezuela, help university and high school students from all over the world to solve their doubts, becoming the Venezuelan professors in international tutors and the help they need first is to create the network where international students seek help and secondly translate the teacher's response so that it is understood by that student who has the doubt, in this way the professors of Venezuela who earn around only $ 2 a month can have an extra income since if these salaries continue where a teacher can not eat even a day will continue to renounce teachers in Venezuela and universities will end and the only place you can think of anything other than food is in the universities there is encouraged free thought but this government wants to end it by increasingly restricting the resources allocated to universities.

Who are the beneficiaries? (1,000 characters)

First the Venezuelans because they will be able to have good education second the professors because they will have how to survive in this crisis and the rest of Latin America because we are going to import brains

How is your idea unique? (1,000 characters)

It is unique because having good quality education, people will want to graduate, and if they want to emigrate as the hope of every Venezuelan will not only have to become the working class or low class of another nation, but they will also have the opportunity and the hope of being able to become part of the upper class in any nation as it will have the right tools to defend itself in a competitive world.

Rodney Lobo Thanks for the information, and if you have taken into account some of those platforms like coursera and youtube that were the only ones you knew. I will work to make those pages and their benefits known, but one of the biggest challenges is to motivate the teachers and let them know that they can live from their profession because at this moment in the Venezuelan universities there is only talk of a strike and a total collapse . Here you need help where teachers can stand for a while while immersed in the digital world
