Get to know the story of Jesumiel Barra, who arrived from San Fernando (Buenos Aires) to India and ended up founding his own school of trades.
If they had asked a young Jesumiel Barra what she thought she was going to devote herself to, surely the answer would have been a long way from what actually happened. But sometimes life gives us signs along the way, and when we discover them, suddenly everything is clear. What does Jesumieldo, then? He teaches street boys crafts . In India.
The laps that took her there from her native San Fernando had to do with the special interest that aroused that culture in her since she was a girl. First, through the sitar, an Indian string instrument that pushed her to travel there every year to learn how to play it with a local teacher. She then began to work as a volunteer in the Mother Teresa Congregation of Calcutta, where she began to see the situation in which some low-caste children lived, who were rejected in schools and forced by their mothers to beg .
That's how he began with his work, little by little. At first, I taught them under a tree. When he noticed that the mothers were not happy, because classes took away their children's time to go begging, he began to teach them craftsso that they could sell the craftsthey made. From then on, everything changed, as even mothers began to learn those trades. Today they rent a small establishment where Jesumiel lives and runs his school .
An Argentinian who found her place far away, but who puts her on a daily basis to make a better world.
