Kahon ng Karunungan aims to reduce educational inequity in the Philippines and around the world, one "kahon" at a time.
Kahon ng Karunungan (KnK, Est. 2018) is a non-profit organization that aims to reduce educational inequity in the Philippines and around the world. Initially, this was done by distributing self-learning kits to disadvantaged schools, such as those which have faced infrastructural damages or are underfunded by the Filipino government. The aim of our "kahons" is to facilitate continued education outside of the classroom. The organization is youth-led, with most of its members being 18 and under. Over the past two years, KnK has distributed over 1500 self-learning kits to schools damaged by typhoons and volcanic eruptions.
This year, KnK is focusing on improving our workbooks to include all four core subjects (English, Social Science, Science, Math), establishing a blog that sheds light on the causes of educational inequity, and using technology to make educational resources available to the remote areas of the world. KnK currently has over 10 partner NGOs from all parts of the world including the United States, Nigeria, Canada, and Ghana.
