Business: Teacher

Teachers can change the world and Grace is leading the pack in her community in Bogota, Colombia. Jesus’ Little Kids School has grown to a student body of 70 children who are learning under her guidance as principal and proprietor every day. Grace, a teacher with a degree she earned through a scholarship to private college, has overcome many challenges along her journey to fill a gap in her neighbourhood for children to receive a good quality education in safe learning environment. Grace accessed an Opportunity loan to buy the larger house next door, becoming a proprietor of her own school. Over the course of six years, Grace has supported the nursery and two kindergarten classes with what parents call the best quality education available.
