Village (in Polish, Wioski)
Awardees: Aleksandra Kozera (HGSE) & Nicole Ivey (HBS)
Summary: Village supports and educates parents and teachers to create local communities for creative, joyful, compassionate young learners who use curiosity and innovative thinking to build a healthy, just and sustainable world. We do so by igniting micro-entrepreneurship of early education teachers to start home-based early education centers. Village provides them with Reggio Emilia inspired professional development, mentoring, business and marketing support, IT platform as well as access to community of village chefs. It takes a village to raise a child – welcome to ours!
