We’d love to share an amazing story of generosity with you – it has inspired us, and we hope it will inspire you too.

Alia Simpson, a Kiwi who lives in Dubai, UAE, recently sent us an email offering to sponsor a SCRATCHPAD school holiday programme for a deserving child who is less fortunate than others. Our initial reaction was scepticism. Why would someone email us out of the blue and offer to pay for a SCRATCHPAD course for someone she doesn’t even know? We contacted her nonetheless and she left us speechless and overwhelmed when she confirmed her intentions and made the payment.
Alia didn’t stop here and has promised to sponsor one child for each of the SCRATCHPAD school holiday programmes throughout 2019. What an amazing gesture!

To honour Alia’s generosity, the team @ SCRATCHPAD has decided to launch an initiative under her name “Alia Sponsorship Programme” to help less fortunate children experience the world of technology and learning.

This means that for every SCRATCHPAD program that is sponsored by someone we will match it with another sponsorship. Christmas is the time of giving. If you think you would like to become a SCRATCHPAD sponsor and want to make a difference to a less fortunate child during this festive season, here are some options to choose from:

  • Gift a school holiday program $99
  • Gift a month of free sessions $160
  • Gift 3 months of free sessions $465
