At Rahoo, we don't just talk the talk - we walk the walk!
We really mean it when we say that we are committed to making a positive impact on teachers and students; here in Ireland and around the globe.
We don’t live in a perfect world and according to Forbes, there are 54 million teachers globally. There is an estimated shortage of 65 million teachers around the world, mainly in parts of Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
One of the main reasons for this global shortage is the lack of professional development and training opportunities for teachers.
This is a big problem and one which effects the daily lives of children all around the world.
We want to be part of the solution and so we have decided to donate 1% of our course fees to worthy education-based charities.
