The Fidget Forward Program!
Providing educational resources to schools in need.
We believe all children should have equal access to educational resources, so we created our Fidget Forward program. We donate our educational games to classrooms and school districts in need.
We strongly believe that education is a fundamental human right for everyone, and we aim to make learning literacy and maths skills accessible to all. Using a multi-sensory and game-based approach to learning is key to developing skills in children. These methods are proven to increase knowledge and understanding in children by up to 90%!
The Fidget Forward Q&A
How can we help reduce educational disparities?
Support teachers financially, by offering higher salaries and benefits for teachers to improve retention. Invest more resources in low-income, underfunded schools.
Is there a literacy crisis in the US?
Absolutely, there is an alarming literacy crisis gripping America. Shockingly, a staggering 32 million adults in the U.S. can't read, according to the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute of Literacy. Even more concerning, around 19% of high school graduates in the country are considered functionally illiterate, meaning they lack the basic reading and writing skills needed for everyday tasks. This crisis perpetuates a cycle of poverty and limits opportunities for countless individuals. Immediate and concerted efforts are crucial to break this cycle, ensuring that all Americans have the literacy skills necessary for success in today's society.
Why is Literacy important?
The higher the literacy rate, the higher the socio-economic and human development of a nation. Hence, literacy not only empowers individuals, families and communities, but it also reduces poverty, improves quality of life, helps to attain gender equality and ensures peace, democracy and sustainable development.
