At the core, we are a group of teachers from North Carolina area who are reaching out to the world. Through a series of what can only be described as serendipitous connections in 2007, we decided to visit a school in a small Mayan village in the highlands of Guatemala. It turns out that a student of one of our trip leaders has a grandfather who grew up in the village where the school is located. That thread of connection crossed geographic, cultural, and historical boundaries to create beautiful friendships..

Our search for a sister school was unchartered territory and is the reason we named our organization Big "LEAP" of Faith. For the past 6 years we have continued to share unique educational strategies, school supplies, and much more with our sister school!
