Improving the lives of vulnerable children

We have developed an Arts-based curriculum for children with disabilities. To learn more about this innovative approach check out CPR4Classrooms.

Coming Soon: Curriculum to increase awareness of Gender Based Violence. This is an ARTS based curriculum designed for use in PRIMARY schools.

Interested in joining one of our teams? Check out our blog for a closer look and contact us if you are interested in volunteering with us!

​In July 2019 we will drill two more.

It costs $ 6,000 to drill a well that provides clean water to thousands! Contact us if you or your organization would like to sponsor a well or contribute to drilling one.

Decades of experience in training teachers all over the world guide our approach to first understand the needs of the community and teaching conditions before designing our professional development sessions for teachers and administrators seeking information on effective practices for including children with disabilities into schools.

Our guiding principles embrace the belief that all children can learn and focus on a child's ability rather than disability.  Everyone can contribute positively to society and is a valuable member of a community.
