Roommate, the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos, uses his considerable financial status to help those in need. He recently announced that he plans to open the first of several free Jeff Bezos Academy’s preschools for low-income families.
Jeff Bezos will officially open the first preschool location on October 19th in Des Moines, Washington. The tuition-free preschools are open all year round, five days a week for children aged 3 to 5. “Additional praise to the team for figuring out how this can be done in the midst of COVID and to Wesley Homes for strengthening the facility,” said Bezos on Instagram, officially announcing the preschool opening.
The preschool selection process for Jeff Bezos Academy involves a variety of data, including income levels, participation in free and low-cost meal plans, and gaps in access to licensed childcare facilities, the nonprofit said.
Bezos talked about how the school wants to promote success:
“We’ll be applying the same principles that drove Amazon. Most important of these will be real, intense customer obsession. The child will be the customer. ”
This announcement follows Bezos, who is officially making history. As we previously reported, he recently became the first person in the world to amass a fortune of $ 200 billion.
Amazon’s founder and CEO is now worth a staggering $ 204.6 billion – nearly $ 90 billion more than the world’s second richest person, Bill Gates, whose own net worth is $ 116.1 billion.
