Current Natalie Taylor Projects
Natalie Taylor Scholars as well as other Babson students, staff, and faculty are currently working on a project in the developing community of Ahuachapán El Salvador. Working to build homes in the community with Habitat for Humanity, students are also working to teach entrepreneurship in the area. The goal of the project is to teach people how they can sustain themselves in a place where the education is poor and job opportunities are slim. By teaching the skills necessary to start and operate a business, the program is giving hope and providing a means of survival to many people in the community.
As part of Babson’s mission to educate entrepreneurial leaders who create great economic and social value everywhere, each year a Babson team of volunteers, including students, staff, faculty, alumni, and friends, travels to the Ganako School in Karatu, Tanzania to teach the BELA program. This one-week, intensive program, works with approximately 100 high school students, teaching them the basics of Entrepreneurial Thought & Action®.
