Meet Shannon May, Co-Founder of Bridge International Academies, the largest chain of private schools in Africa working tirelessly to bring world-class education to the poorest of the poor, democratizing the right to succeed.
Her goal is to ensure that every child, regardless of parental income, has access to the education he or she deserves. Bridge International, which charges $6 a month on average, launched its first school in Nairobi in 2009. It has now expanded across Africa, educating over 100,000 pupils, and plans to reach 10 million children acrossa dozen countries by 2025.
She is our WCW because she is raising thousands of powerful youths. She is intelligent, focused, beautiful and kind!
