According to UNESCO, 2.5 thousand languages are at risk of extinction in the next years. Every 14 days one language desappears. As a result, whole cultures, with their wisdom and habits are gone. You can help us to change this situation, just by speaking your mother tongue, living your culture and sharing it to the whole world.
With Opakatu you will be given all the necessary tools to prepare and edit your lessons, like quick guides, samples, support from the organizers, and more.
Anyone can volunteer. No matter age, available time or background. You only need willpower.
You will help your community, since visitors will be given the opportunity to learn your local language and culture.
You will help your family, for mantaining alive the communication in your mother tongue among all the family members around and even for those who will be born from now on.
You will help yourself, since with the experience and resources to teach you might even find out your new skills.
You will help the world, by reinforcing the struggle for preservation of the beautiful linguistic and cultural diversity, both for us and for the new generations to come.
