EDUCATION & CULTURE
Jugando Aprendo publishes educational books for young children and develops workshops for teachers and parents.

Even as a girl, Gabriela Maldonado was quite the entrepreneur, making and selling everything from cookies to Christmas cards or dog accessories. ‘It was my favourite game – to think about what I could create and sell.’ Gabriela’s chosen career path, however, was always to be a teacher like her mother. It was this combination of professional teaching skills and a passion for entrepreneurship that led to the creation of her company, Jugando Aprendo.
