Our curriculum is designed for grades 6-12, but can be easily adapted for everyone. Hands-on activities, simulations, and discussions are designed to help students better understand global poverty, to take action, and join the fight against it. Key issues include consequences of extreme poverty, resource distribution, sustainable development and fair trade practices.     

Using the curriculum is easy. We’ve included everything to support you from start to finish including step-by-step instructions, reproducible handouts, videos, original African music and much more.
