Practicing Responsible Social Public Relations
“It is not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.“ Said Mother Teresa, one of the most influential individuals modern in history, and winner of Nobel Peace Prize 1979.
Access Education began its philanthropic and social public relations in Taiwan in 1989 with almost nothing in their bank accounts. At that time both founders were in their late 20s.
Co-founder, Mrs. Gray, was the first child born into a family that was living well below the poverty level. Her mother is illiterate, and her father once pulled a rickshaw for U.S. military stationed in Taiwan. both her parents also worked as street vendors.
Mrs. Gray still remembers growing up hungry throughout most of her childhood with her three younger siblings. They survived, in part, on leftovers generously provided by fellow impoverished neighbors who shared what they could, including clothes.
Despite her hardships, she managed to graduate from the best schools in Taiwan, and then studied in the United States in both master’s and doctoral programs. She credits her father’s encouragement for giving her the fortitude to excel in her then new environment.
At Access Education, LLC, we value and enjoy working with people who care about humanity, and who set good examples for the next generation. This is what attracts us to those who work in the field of education. In Albert Einstein’s words we subscribe to the philosophy “Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.”
