Hester lived in Kinshasa from 2006 until 2008 and is one of En Classe's co-founders. She was a French high school teacher before moving to the Congo so no surprise that education as well as Congo are a dear and very important combination to her. She obviously supports En Classe's mission. Now back in the Netherlands, she went back to her teaching job and in that capacity she contributes actively in improving the quality of education. She is planning to join Sylvia and Natascha on their next trip to Kinshasa.
