What is Thrīvera?
Thrīvera is a non-profit organization with a vision to ensure the poorest children of the world have access to education and digital media tools to thrive in this digital era. Our mission is to bring video storytelling to them so they can share their inspiring stories with the rest of the world. In the process, we raise funds that go directly into educational purposes. We simply want to give kids a chance to succeed in this ever-increasing digital world. Ensuring kids get an education, building their digital literacy, and building their communication skills are keys to help them break the cycle of poverty.
What difference will video storytelling make?
We believe stories can change the world, and video & social media are the perfect platforms for storytelling. We have seen the amazing stories that economically disadvantaged youth learn to tell to inspire others. Their stories bring together people who care about making a difference in this world. Storytelling gives these kids a voice to communicate & build confidence. The workshop increases digital literacy, giving kids access to technology, so they can carry these skills into the future, and success is within reach.
Who are the kids that Thrīvera reaches with the program?
We reach economically disadvantaged kids, who are at a high risk of not completing their education. For our US based program we empower kids who are:
Currently, we are partnering with locally based schools here in Cincinnati who are working with these kids already. Our workshops are designed to engage these students so they remain excited about learning. The world is more digital than ever, so learning should be digital too. We hope to keep kids in school & increase graduation rates from 80% to the US target of 90%. Research studies indicate that cutting drop-outs in half which could save $2.3B/year for the nation.
Why are digital technologies so important for the future of these kids?
We live in a digital era where digital technology is shaping our world economy and culture. However, only 1/6 of the global population has access to digital technology. The most developed regions of the world like the US and Europe have wide access to digital technologies, resulting in increased literacy and wealth. Meanwhile, most economically disadvantaged people around the world (in the US and elsewhere) lack access to technology and the skills to use it. As a result, economically disadvantaged youth have lower literacy, lower education, which leads to poverty. These young people are at-risk of growing up without the digital literacy needed to be successful in this global digital era.
