Why help.lk?

We believe that getting help when you need it should be simple for all students, no matter their socioeconomic status. By giving students equal access to the academic support they need to succeed, Help.lk will help students to close the opportunity gap once and for all.

What is help.lk?

Let's take an example student, "Kamal", He has two classes after school, so by the time he gets home and starts his homework, it's already 10 pm. Kamal's parents can't help him. He's behind in math, and He has an exam tomorrow. We connect kamal with a 1-on-1 on-demand instant tutor for a short tutoring session. without Help.lk, Kamal has no one to turn to for help.
