  1. Eduspot has been helping students to widen their knowledge in the area of the literacy and technology, this laudable program should be encouraged and sustain in order to prepare the minds of students and the younger generation for the future ahead. All hands on deck to volunteer and support this creative initiative.

  2. Having gone through your website, I wish to join as a volunteer and connect my school to benefit from the good works your outfit is doing.
