Tribute to our Founder Hildur Jackson
Hildur Jackson, Gaia Education founder, visionary and co-worker, passed away gently on Sunday the 6 September 2015 surrounded by her family.
Hildur was born in Denmark in 1942, where she also spent most of her life. She gained her Bachelor’s degree in Law, continuing to Postgraduate studies in Cultural Sociology. She was a strong idealist, both intelligent and humble, who saw communities as the future and education as the hope for the world. She was married to Ross Jackson with whom they had three children and nine grandchildren.
“May her memory be a blessing and an inspiration to us all.”
