The Hyest Foundation is a self-funded non-profit platform that is dedicated to creating a tangible impact in the world. At our core, we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to experience their full potential, and access to education is a cornerstone of achieving this goal.
Through our work, we strive to remove the barriers that stand between individuals and their dreams. Our current focus is on providing a free English education program to students in the rural school of La Esmeralda, where access to quality educational resources can be limited. By empowering these students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed, we are creating a brighter future for them and their communities.
When we first met Isabel, she had a big dream of becoming an English teacher. However, like many people, she faced significant barriers that made it difficult for her to achieve her goals. As a single mother, she struggled to make ends meet with unsteady employment cleaning homes and local businesses. The cost of continuing her education was simply out of reach.
That's when Isabel's story took a turn for the better. As Luca Love's first artisan, she found a supportive community that helped her to reach her full potential. With our help, Isabel was able to complete her high school credits and continue her education. Today, we are proud to say that she is the head teacher of our English program, inspiring the next generation of learners and breaking down barriers for others like her.
In 2015, Isabel assisted us in initiating our English program and her journey is a testament to the power of community and the transformative potential of education. We are proud to have played a part in her success, and we remain committed to empowering others like her to achieve their dreams.
Our program started as extracurricular classes, sharing space with other teachers at the school. We were thrilled when the community council recognized the impact we were making and offered us an unfinished room to use for our classes.
We saw the potential in that space and with hard work, we were able to transform it into a welcoming and comfortable learning environment for our students. Today, our classroom is a hub of learning and growth, and we take pride in providing a safe and supportive environment for our students to thrive.
Our program has continued to grow and evolve, thanks to the dedication of our team and the support of our community. We are proud to share that it has now been officially integrated into the school's curriculum, a testament to the positive impact we have made on the community.
We are grateful for the opportunity to serve and empower the next generation of learners. Our mission is to inspire and support students, and we will continue to work hard to create meaningful impact in the lives of those we serve.
