About us
Always. Everywhere. At the push of a button.
evulpo is a learning platform for all students aged 9-19 and already offers explanatory videos, summaries and practice units for English, Maths, and Science topics in other European countries. The team of this young startup is committed to changing the world of international education for the long term: All students - regardless of background - should not only have the same right but also the same access to education. 
Why do we want that?
Everyone has the right to education", says the 26th article of human rights. Well said... the problem is that while everyone has the same right to education, not everyone has the same access to education. Some have good teachers. Others don't. Some have older siblings. Others don't. Some have money for tutoring. Others don't.
