Providing a Hand Up, not a Hand Out

Our Beginnings

Claudia holds a BA in Education K-12 and an MA in Educational Psychology. Her teaching career has focused on implementing holistic pedagogy with disadvantaged populations to support student growth in finding identity, meaning, and purpose in life through intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, creative, and spiritual connections.

Claudia is a teacher in the USA who first traveled to Africa in 2019. While in Tanzania, she was introduced to the Maasai by Julius Mollel, a fellow teacher. In a world where indigenous cultures are quickly disappearing, Claudia felt compelled to become an advocate for Maasai education that preserves their heritage while preparing them for success in today’s world.
