The girl in my class
17 August 2017
Words With Heart is an Australian eco-friendly stationery company with a mission: fund a million days of education for girls in developing countries by 2020. ING’s Dreamstarter initiative helped founder Lauren Shuttleworth get started. But there’s more to this story.
Dreaming is believing: To help girls like Esther stay in school, Lauren Shuttleworth quit her job and started her own stationery company. [3:50]
When Lauren suddenly lost her mother, she decided to travel to Kenya to do volunteering work as a teacher. There she met an eight-year-old girl named Esther.
This brilliant girl, dreaming of becoming a doctor one day, inspired Lauren to make a life-changing decision.
