Helen A. Boxwill, Executive Director and Founder at H2 Empower, Inc., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in providing knowledge and improving literacy skills to other countries.
Ms. Boxwill always wanted to be a teacher because she loved school and had some great teachers. When she graduated from college, she was shy but loved being with kids. She found that and still believes, that education is the key to not only personal success and financial statement, but personal achievement. Being able to understand what you are reading, analyze things, access information, and learn new things every day is a joy and is life-changing. Those are the things that she really achieved in her life. She is carrying that philosophy and, in one very small part of the world, trying to help improve educational opportunities for people who have almost none. They have accomplished a lot, but there’s still a lot to do. Ms. Boxwill loves children and believes that education is the way out of poverty and into a life of meaning and personal fulfillment. She believes there is nothing better in life you can do than become a teacher. Ms. Boxwill earned a Bachelor of Arts from Dickinson College in 1967. She then received a Master of Arts from the New School of Social Research in 1976 and a Master of Science in administration and supervision from the College of New Rochelle in 1995.
After Ms. Boxwill retired as a principal, she volunteered to work in education in Ethiopia, including one year working in the Ministry of Education of Ethiopia as an early grade-reading consultant. She was able to apply all of her experience and education, as well as learn from local experts, teachers, and children and able to influence policy on a national scale. Since 2004, Ms. Boxwill has been the founder and executive director of H2Empower, Inc. With her company, she is working with communities to develop sustainable solutions to community problems and connecting people and organizations with the purpose of enriching lives. They are currently working in Ethiopia and Burundi. They have successfully trained teachers and increased access to information. Her company supports the communities on many levels to develop sustainable structures instead of just sending money. As a testament to her success, Ms. Boxwill has received myriad accolades, including but not limited to a Professional Award from the National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women in 2012 and a Teacher for Africa Award from the International Foundation for Education and Self-Help in 2004.
