My Why (Leveling the Playing Field through Education)

If you’re born poor, you’ll die poor in the developing world and no child should die unfulfilled just because they’re born poor.

As Shakira said in one of my favorite speeches: “There are over 200 million learners out of school who face extreme poverty, conflicts and displacement, poor nutrition, and little hope for the future with no access to schools. It’s proven that for every $1 invested in a child’s early education, that same child returns $17 to the state in his adult life.” Which is why I hold such a strong belief that in giving kids access to an education and helping the parents is as Ghandi once said, my best way to be a part of the change I wish to see the in world.
