Students from affluent backgrounds and accompanying educational opportunities, share basic skills with children from low-income communities.

Skills such as maths + reading + writing are transferred by students – some who have been involved in the program for a number of years. They seem highly motivated to pass on skills and I'm guessing they develop empathy along the way. Plus it's great to see the level of attention that learners receive as they are split into small groups. 

How might financial empowerment be sparked early in youth through fun ways of educating in the classroom? How might we connect folks from different financial capacities within a community to learn and grow?
