On September 1, 2022 the doors opened to the first cohort of INSPIRA International School students in Craiova, Romania!
After years of planning, our client Claudia Cochină, opened her accredited Cambridge International school, which has a mission to educate and inspire future generations to become inspiring leaders and change makers in Romania. It utilizes pedagogical techniques innovative to the traditional Romanian education system, including a hands-on, experience-driven, learning style-sensitive, and arts-inclusive education, with focus on critical thinking and analytical reasoning.
Given growing disenchantment with the quality of public education in Romania and few affordable public school options available, this new venture is meeting a critical need and growing demand in the region.
High Quality Education
INSPIRA provides exceptional education for Kindergarten and Grades 1 through 12 with an approach that nourishes passions and talents, helping students become original thinkers and independent learners.
There’s also a focus on developing multiple life-skills, and entrepreneurial mindsets, while fostering wellbeing and a sense of purpose.
The Infused Impact team has been working with Claudia over the last 2 years on her business plan, financials, etc.
We’re excited to see her vision finally become a reality, and we’ve issued financing to help operationalize this venture that is creating new jobs and directly impacting lives.
Claudia, a seasoned educator and entrepreneur, grew up in communist Romania and lived through the hardships of the system – no heat, no electricity, queueing for hours for groceries etc. She sees how Romania’s current educational system does not equip students for today’s opportunities – thousands leave the country each year for better education. But through INSPIRA Claudia is literally changing Romania, by investing in the next generation.
