Alice Zhang and Catherine Hong, The Learning Project
On the North Shore side of Sydney, Australia, Alice Zhang hopes to reduce systemic inequalities that are causing a learning gap between disadvantaged youth and youth with economic and social privilege. Alice and her partner, Catherine Hong, created The Learning Project, to provide free tutoring students in the North shore region with the philosophy that, “all children should be given an equal chance in life to succeed, and that there should be funding available to people who need it.”
Alice and Catherine are piloting the program for the next year so they can prove results and show impact.
