Moving towards a 100% literate Bangladesh through an app

In Bangladesh, while 98% of children enroll in school, 2 million children drop out to work before achieving literacy in order to support their families financially. On the flipside, Bangladesh has a diaspora population of 10 million in advanced economies who wish to make an impact on their homeland. AlterYouth, imagine Uber for scholarships, is a C2C scholarship app enabling users from around the world to start scholarships directly for financially struggling students in Government Primary Schools of Bangladesh, through digital banking. AlterYouth does not accept donations, the app simply transfers scholarships from users to student's bank accounts, with the primary aim of preventing children from choosing work over school.
