You may have read our recent blog about Sangeeta from India. Sangeeta was a student at a Trades of Hope-funded school and now works at the school. She has a huge heart for children! When she learned many had been victims of abuse, she furthered her education to become a counselor in addition to her role as teacher. She learned how to care for children at risk. Outside the school, she also uses her training to impact the lives of teens in her community. It is not hard to see why she is so loved by her students and fellow teachers!
Sangeeta is very thankful to Trades of Hope for the opportunity to shape young minds:
"It is all thanks to all your hard work that we can educate and create a brighter future for the kids at the school! Thank you for supporting our school through finances and prayer."
Kika is a proud, happy teacher who felt a strong connection to children since she was a teenager. When walking past a summer camp one afternoon, she heard the children's laughter. It had a magical effect on her. She ended up working with the camp as her first contact with children, and in her words, "LOVED the experience!"
Kika says that working at the school has opened yet another door: COMPASSION. She has a better understanding of her beloved country of Haiti. She summarizes her job beautifully: "I feel useful as I share my knowledge with this group of vibrant kids. I hope to bring a small stone to the building of a proud and capable community. Children are also MY teachers of life. They don't hold grudges and receive each day with an open heart. They are accepting, show no difference or judgment ... They are true innocence and if we care well for them, they will be GREAT leaders! I am glad to work in a loving environment, where harmony naturally flows! Thank you for this opportunity to be of service. I just love my little bosses!”
Trades of Hope is also proud to support Ashley, a former Trades of Hope Compassionate Entrepreneur, now living and teaching in Uganda. In fact, many of our Compassionate Entrepreneurs are moms who are teachers or who homeschool! We LOVE to invest in the future through the work of amazing teachers. They deserve so much more recognition and thanks than one holiday per year. THANK YOU, teachers for doing a sometimes thankless, but crucial job as you inspire, encourage, and shape tomorrow’s leaders.
