Impact
Education and inspiration are at the center of everything Kinspire does. Along with providing the necessary resources for the students to succeed, Kinspire strives to inspire these students to continue their passions. Our volunteers are what make this happen. Kinspire's operations are focused in two areas:
Projects
Skype Tutoring
Skype Tutoring is Kinspire's flagship project, which connects tutors from the United States with the children in the orphanages through Skype-based English lessons. This project forms the core of Kinspire's mission, giving the children access to educational resources with the combined power of technology and passionate volunteers.
Health Curriculum
At Johns Hopkins University, the Kinspire JHU branch is developing a holistic health-focused curriculum that can be delivered to the children in the orphanages to complement their academic education. The team is preparing a series of video modules and related exercises that will help the children grasp key concepts relating to their personal health.
Portal Content
Kinspire's Portal is a learning application that the kids in the orphanage can use to access learning materials, resources, and connect with volunteers from their own computer. The Portal Content team creates and manages the core learning materials and exercises for the kids to explore and learn from on the portal.
Technology
Website
Kinspire's official website is the main entry point for interested volunteers, donors, sponsors, and partners to find out more about Kinspire's mission and work. The website team therefore is hard at work to make sure that the website reflects the most accurate and up-to-date information about the organization and its projects.
Kinspire Global
Born out of a project submission from Kinspire's first Innovation Challenge, Kinspire Global is an all-in-one platform to bring visibility to orphanages' needs. By cataloging and quantifying the orphanages' assets and needs, donors wishing to help will have a clear and reliable picture of how their donations can assist the orphanages.
Portal UI
Kinspire's Portal is a learning application that the kids in the orphanage can use to access learning materials, resources, and connect with volunteers from their own computer. The Portal UI team designs and implements a friendly user interface for the kids.
Portal Software
Kinspire's Portal is a learning application that the kids in the orphanage can use to access learning materials, resources, and connect with volunteers from their own computer. The Portal Software team develops the application itself, providing a robust backbone to the kids' learning experience on the portal.

Public Relations

The Public Relations committee oversees the social media interactions of Kinspire and focuses on posting regular updates.

Events help volunteers who want to participate at a short time. The events that we run can serve various purposes, from fundraising and awareness in the US, to directly impacting the kids in India.
