water: the global passport

A virtual journey that teaches empathy & resource conservation

Through experiential games and activities participants learn about the water crisis and ways to conserve their local resources.

This signature program takes students on a virtual journey around the world to foster an understanding of water-related challenges and drive empathy for those lacking this basic need.

women’s health & empowerment

Bringing together women and girls to drive local and global change.

Fifty percent of women in the U.S. are period shamed and many women and girls can’t afford to purchase menstrual products.

Our annual Menstrual Hygiene Day campaign and event – ‘Break the Barriers’ brings together woman and girls to discuss and overcome challenges that we face here at home and around the world.  This celebration typically includes a movement workshop, empowering guided conversations, and a bonding tea party.
