In August, sixth grader Neel Kumar launched a series of free educational videos called “Effortless Java,” which are designed to help younger students learn how to code. He was partially inspired to create the series after completing an online course only to find out he was too young to receive certification. In addition, the platform he had planned to use to host his course disqualified him as a teacher on the basis of his age. Kumar hopes his videos will reach children around the world and give them a means to escape poverty. To support this effort further, he launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for Children International, a long-running humanitarian organization that works to help impoverished children.
