Dorah started a preschool in 2008 because she saw so many children playing in the dump and running in the streets. Her goal was to create a safe place for children to learn and to have fun. While she had a big heart towards her dream to bless the children, due to a lack of training and resources, she felt overwhelmed. She managed to save up money to build a shack to start her preschool.
Eric and Mimi met Dorah in 2013. Their relationship began with one simple question, “How can we best serve you?” At the time, she needed training on being a teacher and creating an afterschool program to care for the kids that were gathering to her property every day. Eric quickly developed Heritage Kids Club and Mimi began investing in Dorah’s education and formal teacher training.
When Mimi offered to work together with Dorah in training her in a curriculum, she started to cry. She kept saying, “I’ve been waiting for someone to come and help me.”
Since that time, Dorah has grown in her confidence as a teacher and is realizing her dream of blessing the children in her community.
