South African-born educator, Kate Groch, graduated with a BSc from the University of Cape Town specialising in zoology. Early in her career she co-founded a company called Future Nature Edu enabling young people from international destinations to become involved in South African community development and conservation projects.
In 2006, realising the extent of the developing world’s education crisis, Kate focused her community projects and started the non-profit organisation, Good Work Foundation. Together with experts from around the world, she has pioneered four digital learning campuses in rural South African communities. In 2013, Kate was invited to speak at TEDx in Edinburgh and in 2015 she was named as an ‘Architect of Change’ by bestselling author, Maria Shriver.
