“We didn’t need to be sent by any organization, we needed to be here.”
– Kyle Wilson
Working as a math teacher in Almanace County, North Carolina, Kyle Wilson saw a broken education system. Following his calling, Kyle completed his Master’s of Divinity in Christian Education from Duke University’s Divinity School in 2009.
Missionary work with the Korean First Presbyterian Church of Greensboro first brought Kyle to the Yucatan, where he fell in love with the people and their culture.
His family decided to make a permanent home in the area, and Kyle, with his wife Jong He Kim and son Ethan, drove seven days in the family minivan from North Carolina to Cacalchen.
Kyle says fate led him to a relationship with the Asociacion De Desarollo Unido en Mexico (ADU), where he was inspired by the vision for youth that went beyond religion. He wanted to develop a way to adress the educational and physical needs of the children. He became ADU Director in October 2010.
