    Thank you for the helpful article. I am very glad that there is such an initiative - it gives a chance and opportunity to those who really require it. So everyone can help and everyone will have a chance for a brighter future. I also saw an interesting initiative at the resource with free essay samples, where you can find materials to improve the quality of their knowledge. Modern education requires changes and so modern approaches to learning improve the quality of skills of the student and save time that significantly making life more comfortable, so students have more free time for their hobbies and interests.
