Education should always both “be good” and “do good.”
Both for you, and everyone you can touch!
With this in mind, Starweaver has decided that 100% of the revenues from our multimedia elearning courses (>380 in total) will go to a charity of your choice from the list below. In this way, not only can you learn but you can help others learn, too!
For 2018 and 2019, we have selected the following notable and worthwhile charities to choose from. At the time of checkout, you will be able to select from one of these charities and 100% of the proceeds (less direct cost of credit card processing which is paid immediately to the credit card processor; typically 2.5-3.0%) will go to that charity. We will make the donation monthly in total, and as a paid-up subscriber you will have access to reports confirming this your payment to us, and our payment to them!).

Smile Foundation is an NGO in India directly benefitting over 600,000 children and their families every year, through more than 250 live welfare projects on education, healthcare, livelihood and women empowerment, in over 950 remote villages and slums across 25 states of India.
Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life: the means because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one’s awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behaviour to understanding one’s rights – and in the process help him/her evolve as a better citizen.
Doubtless, education is the most powerful catalyst for social transformation. But child education cannot be done in isolation. A child will go to school only if the family, particularly the mother, is assured of healthcare and empowered. Moreover, when an elder sibling is relevantly skilled to be employable and begins earning, the journey of empowerment continues beyond the present generation.
