"These lessons are easy to use, activity based, motivating and

of high interest for children. Students are taken on a journey where they learn about our

world and gain a better understanding of the problems families in developing countries must overcome in order to improve their lives. Young students can play an important part in bringing hope to families

in developing countries."

Marilyn Blattel, Retired Teacher
