During Symphony of Soul’s recent participation in Amplify ATX we partnered with Kwaddle to enhance the fundraising opportunities for both organizations. We support our partner’s mission and encourage you to explore their services.
Our vision is to create mobile and web applications that allow parents to easily view and register their children for high-quality activities, such as structured sports and art classes, short play dates with other parents, drop-in day care visits and fully immersive, overnight summer camps.
Growing up in a middle-class neighborhood outside of Sacramento, California, I was lucky to have parents who pushed me into extracurricular activities. As a first-generation Indian-American kid, my childhood was filled with soccer games, karate lessons, drawing classes, baseball practices and Cub Scouts. These activities cultivated my confidence and curiosity, which pushed me forward in life.
As a parent, now living in Austin, TX, I’m trying to find the best activities for my son. Scouring the Internet, reading newspapers, browsing brochures and piecing together recommendations from other parents, I realized how difficult it was to find fun, educational and affordable activities for my kid.
On average, a parent spends 4-5 hours per week organizing, handling logistics and planning activities for their 4- to 14-year-old. Most websites, magazines and newspapers simply list a service provider’s phone number and address without giving parents the ability to search for availability, pay for services or reserve a spot.
In fact, only 57 percent of kids between the age of 6-17 participate in at least one after school extracurricular activity, meaning 4 out of every 10 kids are losing out on a fundamental experience.
Hence, Kwaddle was born.
