Weedor, Inc. (formerly Computer for Kids International, Inc. (COKI)) is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated under Virginia State Law on the 23rd day of July 2018. Weedor’s goal is to empower African schools, starting with Liberia, to create a conducive, inclusive, and innovative learning environment for all, irrespective of their race, gender, nationality, tribe, and economic status, meaningfully contributing to the creation of a world where no child is left behind. Practically, our work seeks to accelerate United Nations Sustainable Development Goal IV, “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”.
The name WEEDOR is historic and has an “emotional value” to the organization’s founder; it is in honor of a loving mother and all mothers around the world who make extraordinary sacrifices to put meaning and purpose into the lives of their children.
In suggesting this name, Donald, a member of the board of directors, provided the below arguments:
"Till All Is Gold"
Till all is gold is our mental approach to striving to achieve excellence in all we do as an organization. It is the height at which our success as an organization is being measured.
Key indicators of success include:
To be the premier institution for education reform in Africa
To power Africa with technology solutions to accelerate quality education for all
being open and answerable. We exist solely as a platform or the connection between the helper and helpee. Therefore, we are answerable to both parties and a fundamental way to do so is to be transparent in our dealings.
being honest to ourselves even when others are not on the lookout. We believe in ourselves and hold ourselves accountable to the standards and principles we ascribe to in the spirit of love, unity, and justice.
being at the best in what we do. We believe that to gain the confidence of our supporters, partners, and the public, responsibility in what we do and how do it matters.
being able to create alternative ideas and implement those ideas into workable programs and activities to achieving operational results, and adapting in our operations to changing needs and best practices
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to COKI’s activities. We believe that only varied perspectives from a diverse team can generate and implement the bold ideas required to improve teaching and learning for every kid.
