Budding entrepreneur keeps on giving
Krystal Rosa was awarded £2,400 by A2Dominion in March 2015 to expand her popular literacy school for young children.
Krystal, a volunteer teacher from Westminster had been independently running Woods House Reading School for two years before receiving the funding at a ‘Dragons’ Den’ style event held in London.
The emerging school, based at Woods House on Gatliff Road in London, provides children with a tailored development programme, allowing them to learn at their own speed.
With her business fully operational, Krystal turned her attention to helping older people develop their IT skills through A2Dominion’s Digital DIY programme, which she does on a voluntary basis alongside running the school.
Although the Digital DIY programme aims to help people to get online and become IT-literate, Krystal says that she too has benefitted from the volunteering scheme: “I have really been able to build my confidence through teaching IT to adults,” she said.
Esson Barnes, Community Investment Co-ordinator, works closely with the staff and residents at Woods House and says that Krystal has truly made a lasting impression. “Krystal’s attitude and spirit is an inspiration,” he said. “She has contributed so much to the people of Woods House, whether it be through her school or through volunteering. I hope that A2Dominion can continue to support her professionally and personally for many years to come.”
