05 Mar Klara’s Story – how MathMoms connected with a family in Sweden
A beloved wife, mother and daughter, Klara, 41, passed away last October. She suffered from cancer and although she was a real fighter against the disease she have to give up. Klara, a passionate psychologist, had a big heart for children, especially for children in vulnerable situation. Besides taking care of her own three small children, together with her husband, she cared about children both in her profession and privately.
Southern Africa was a special concern for Klara since she as a child lived for some years in Botswana and SA. More than 10 years ago she heard about the organisation “Free to grow”.When Klara died, her husband, parents and sister, decided to establish a fund in memory of Klara, called the Klara Foundation. Nobody was unmoved when meeting Klara, she had lots of friends, and masses contributed to the foundation after her death.
Through the organisation “Free to grow” the family heard about the MathMoms, a project in line with what we think would be what Klara should have chosen to support. Klara´s parents visited the Moms and got convinced this is a project worth supporting. To strengthen education for children, especially in mathematics, is most essential and definitely in line what was Klara´s intentions.
