Story Spotlight                                         
Bella is a precious child in one of our programs for three-year-olds.  She was experiencing abuse in her home, but did not know how to ask for help.  We taught Bella and her classmates about the safety they deserve, using the Second Step Child Protection Unit curriculum. 

Bella bravely told her story. We worked with local authorities to ensure her safety and provide follow-up care.

You can help more children experience life-changing education. 

Donate now to give children like Bella a week (or more!!!) of early childhood education.
