This summer Born2Fly is partnering with a non-profit organization in West Bengal, India, that has taken our curriculum and run with it! Here's what happened:
First they taught the Born2Fly anti-trafficking program to nearly 200 kids and teens. Our program is 6 sessions, which they taught in 6 weeks. Here's week #3:
The kids made posters based on the information in our curriculum, which they hung in schools and around town:
At the end of week #6, the curriculum includes a commitment not to be trafficked:
Here are some of the kids signing the commitment at their graduation ceremony:
But wait; there's more!
The Peerless Sarovar Portico Hotel in Durgapur found out about the program and wanted the same organization to train their hotel staff in how to spot and fight human trafficking . . .
Attention traffickers: Stay away from Peerless Hotel; they're on to you.
But wait; there's even more!
An organization in another city found out about these trainings and they want someone to come and teach their kids and teens, too. That's why we love partnerships!
If you know someone anywhere in the world who works with kids, they can do the same thing. Just ask them to register at www.born2fly.org and we'll send them a password to download the complete Born2Fly curriculum without charge. It's available in 10 languages including Hindi, Spanish, Russian, Thai, and more.
"Thank you for your hard work and support bringing this curriculum to West Bengal," writes our partner in India (who wishes to remain anonymous). "We are blessed to learn about ways to keep safe, help others and ways we can help fight against human trafficking."
That thanks goes to YOU, our many Born2Fly sponsors around the world who make success stories like this possible. Together we really are reaching kids before the traffickers do.
