Today on our Global Activism segment, we talk to Ziomara Perez, a Chicago preschool teacher. “Ms. Zio,” as her students call her, teaches her preschoolers to make a difference in other children’s lives in small but impactful ways.
Zio is founder of SwaziKids International, an organization that raises money to send kids in Swaziland to school. In addition to paying children's school fees, SwaziKids sends school supplies, books, classroom furnishings and uniforms to under-served schools in the country.
