Project Report | Jun 13, 2022
Teaching has allowed me to transform lives!

By Carlos Escalante | Communications Specialist

Dear Friends,

Do you know that one teacher may have the potential to impact the lives of around 90 other individuals? Microsoft estimates that a teacher influences about 3,000 lives per year. A pretty impressive number for such an amazing and inspirational job.

At The Trust for the Americas, education is the core of what we do. Thus, it has proved to be the most effective path to ensure access to more and better economic opportunities, especially for those who cannot find jobs easily. We are able to accomplish this thanks to partnerships and to people like you who have continuously supported us in transforming lives in the Western Hemisphere.

For instance, Ivani is a pre-K teacher in Palmelo, Goiás, Brazil. She is one of the many lives impacted by us with your support. Her participation at the POETA Center changed her life. It gave her more skills to improve her work profile and continue teaching more people.

Ivani learned from an early age that technology plays an essential role in one’s life, as she obtained her bachelor’s degree online. Nevertheless, during her training at the POETA Center, she improved her technological knowledge and now applies it in her job as a teacher and her entrepreneurship. As a result of this project, she was also able to continue teaching people with disabilities during lockdowns in her small town, Palmelo. Among other things, she expanded her business after completing the project.

Today, Ivani faces many different types of challenges. However, she is more aware of the importance of cultivating 21st-century digital skills in people and boosting her agricultural business to make Palmelo a better place to live.

We are grateful for your help. Through your support, we continue to make a difference in the lives of those in most need.

Stay tuned to learn more about these local heroes!
