This is huge news! After 1 year of solid work, we've FINISHED the curriculum for The Born2Fly Project to stop child trafficking.
Can you see me jumping for joy? Dancing? Spinning? Doing cartwheels?
I wish I could show you this amazing curriculum that gives teachers all over the world the tools they need to teach the important concepts in the B2F wordless book. Our goal is to reach kids before the traffickers do -- and this curriculum does that.
The team has worked on it for a year and they did a brilliant job. Mega thanks to educators Karen Armistead and Georgia Ana Larson for sharing their expertise and heart on every page, and to artist Leah Wiedemer whose illustrations make it all come alive.
Georgia Ana, who's taught at-risk kids in 3rd-world countries, told me, "If you want to make a change in a community, you have to involve every level of that community in what you're doing."
That's what we've done.
She helped us create a 6-week community program to stop child trafficking. It involves not just kids, parents, and teachers, but the entire community.
It's nearly 70 pages and includes age-appropriate teaching material, games, posters, activities, and more. Adults mentor teenagers to be "apprentice teachers," and they work together to teach the younger kids in their community. That way we reach everyone.
There's NOTHING else like this anywhere.
That's why dozens of people all over the world have written to us and are waiting for copies of everything.
But first we have to test it.
And here's more good news.
Someone has offered to cover the costs to test the B2F program in the Dominican Republic -- starting THIS MONTH. They're even taking care of printing costs. Awesome!
Once we get feedback from these teachers, teens, and kids, we'll tweak everything and begin distributing these amazing materials around the world.
So watch this space for details!
