“BoYo has been cultivated in touching the weakest part of the spectrum in Taiwan: kids from impoverished families in the remote areas. With 17 education centres, and the collaboration with 170 elementary schools as well as junior high schools, BoYo offers kids more care on after-school education, especially for those kids who shows difficulties to catch up with others in the class. Furthermore, BoYo adopted statistics and online database to continuously improve teaching quality. As a result, BoYo has aided the graduates to pursue better living environment from low-quality living condition.”
