Investing in our children
Sustained cultural change will come from children. In strongcommunities, young people embrace their culture. They value creativity and collaboration. They are dedicated family members.
My First Steps My Path encourages children to be lifelong learners. Through support of daycares, kindergarten, after school programs and school curricula, we work to improve access to quality education. This will create a new generation of informed, educated citizens who make a meaningful contribution to their community while supporting social change.
SECOND AREA OF FOCUS
Curriculums considerations and direction include:
Concentration – allowing children time and space to follow their own interests and passions
Self-monitoring skills for individual growth
Self-discipline and independence
Curiosity and Imagination – through real life experiences
