PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- "A quality education can be the greatest asset a child living impoverished can use to create a better future for themselves."
In 2007, Kate Curran, an executive with GE at the time, suffered a tremendous loss.
She lost both parents and her brother within a very short period of time.
The grieving led her to make a major change in her life and she walked away from the financial security of a successful corporate job.
What she did next has led to significant impact for children living in impoverished countries abroad.
