The Coronovirus pandemic hit us all hard. Most of the work of The Achiever Academy was done inside schools. We were not able to access schools, meet in person and facilitate our trainings as usual. We have decided to transfer our work to Beautiful Spirited Women, a nonprofit with similar purpose. Please contact them to support request or to make donations. Thank you!
