Scholar stories —

“There are hundreds of students worldwide who deserve this extraordinary opportunity called Gakko[...]This camp is a huge step in education and changed radically my life perception. No words can explain how grateful I am for this life-changing opportunity.”

Aleksander, Poland

Gakko Camp 2017, Bali


“Gakko gave me a great opportunity to explore myself, my interest and the way I want to be educated in the future in a time where I needed it the most. I think more high school students should have access to the camp at this time which is crucial to their future and future education.”

Carol, Egypt

Gakko Camp 2017, France


“Growing up in a small city especially that of a poor and developing country there is a lack of initiative and confidence especially among the youths to dream and achieve beyond the borders of Indonesia [...] This is just what my peers need to be able to realize the genius within them and find the strength to overcome their own weaknesses to seize their dreams and see it come to life as that was what I was able to do from my experience being part of Gakko.”

Alan, Indonesia

Gakko Camp 2017, Japan
