Teach.MathsNOW Scholarships.

Eddie

You really do open up a new world of possibilities. You enable that child to become a human being who can flourish in the world, who can look at the numerical realities around them and not just be afraid, not be seized with anxiety, but actually move forward in confidence to take on that job that they might be a bit afraid of or not confident to do. And that's going to change not just their life, but their family's life, their community's life... That can change the world.
