Starfish: Her Infinite Impact
I am Vilma Saloj. I am an Indigenous, Mayan woman. I Live in the 21st century in Sololá, Guatemala. I am a daughter and a sister. I am a model of female empowerment. I am a young woman with big dreams.
A new project in my life, my job and my country is female empowerment, with education, leadership and community.
I am the director of Colegio Impacto. Our focus is to have high expectations for the young girls. My passion is Education. I believe if all people, specifically women, have education, we can transform our country, our lives and future generations. Now, we have professional development to prepare the teachers to teach the students. We found the land where we will build our school. We also finished the selection process of fifty girls and the final step is to start Escuela Estrellitas, where we will prepare our girls with the philosophy of the future school, Colegio Impacto.
How You Can Help:
I want your support to grow my knowledge about Education. I would like books about professional development, critical thinking, and resources and materials for teachers. In addition to this, I would like my staff to have the ability to visit other schools and learn from other contexts in other countries and from other organizations, if you have any connections please pass them along.
