Weedor, formerly known as Computer for Kids International, Inc. (COKI), is a distinguished 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization officially established under Virginia State Law on July 23, 2018. Our core purpose at Weedor is to empower educational institutions across Africa to cultivate a nurturing, all-encompassing, and forward-thinking learning environment that transcends barriers of race, gender, nationality, ethnicity, and economic background. Our steadfast commitment is grounded in the vision of a world where every child can thrive regardless of their circumstances.
Our operational endeavors are firmly rooted in the pursuit of accelerating the achievement of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal IV: "ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all." We work tirelessly to bring this goal closer to realization with a clear mission “To power Africa with technology solutions to accelerate quality education for all," knowing that education is the key to unlocking the potential of individuals and communities alike.
At Weedor, we believe that education is not merely a pathway to personal growth but also the cornerstone of societal progress. Our comprehensive initiatives are designed to break down barriers, foster inclusivity, and ignite innovation within the educational landscape. Through collaborative partnerships, innovative programs, and a deep commitment to social impact, we aspire to transform the future, where no child is left behind.
Join us in our mission to revolutionize education, create opportunities for all, and contribute to a brighter and more equitable global future. Together, we can bridge the gap and make quality education a reality for every child.
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.
