Brief description

The initiative “Solidarity Classes” arises from Covid_19 with a dual purpose:
1) Educational. Help young people who are confined preparing for university entrance exams or doing their research for high school, degree or Master.
2) Social. Reduce the food emergency that has increased due to Covid_19.

How? We are a network of high school and university teachers who offer our knowledge and experience to all young people who need “classes” (online format). When the student finishes his classes, makes a financial contribution directly to the food bank. This contribution is anonymous and there is no minimum amount; This amount is decided by the student based on their resources and the satisfaction of the classes.
“The idea is that with very little we can do a lot”.

Solidarity classes consider that education is the most powerful weapon to change the world.
