We have been following Teach for All in Peru (Enseña Peru) for more than 3 years. The concept is amazing: they take the best students of the most prestigious universities of the country and send them to teach in the most challenging neighborhood for 2 years.
Leaders of Enseña Peru have a different approach to education than regular teachers: they are willing to reach beyond the four walls of the classroom, help their students rise above the challenges they face, and make up for weaknesses in schools and systems. Their leadership, high standards, and firm belief in their students’ abilities inspire those students to believe in themselves and strive for formerly unimaginable goals.
We are proud to be able to sponsor one of these leaders of the change: Daniela Gamboa. She just graduated from Universidad de Piura and will start in March 2015 her professional career by working 2 years in a Prekinder in Pachacutec (a low-income neighborhood in the outskirts of Lima).
This sponsorship has been possible thanks to all donations received from a wonderful “Party for Association Léon” birthday held in November 2014. We sincerely thank our kind ambassador (the birthday kid) and his generous friends : ‘’good boys and bad girls’’.
