Raising Awareness in a Simple Way

April 9, 2013

In the past few weeks, students from Mr. Scott, Mrs. Thornton and Mr. Heeren’s Class have been studying slavery and human trafficking. After hearing speaker Jon Andrews from Tiny Hands International, the students were moved to want to help. In class discussions, many of them knew they wanted to do something, but they didn’t know what.

If you are on Twitter, you may have seen the #iempower hashtag. The educational company MentorMob has partnered with the Kwagala Project to raise awareness for human trafficking. To do this, they are asking people to take a picture (like the ones below) and share it through social media. The pictures are then shared with children in Uganda who are dealing with extremely hard times. Here are just a few of the students who are making an impact by simply sharing words of encouragement.IMG_1447 IMG_1459 IMG_1462 IMG_1473 IMG_1474 IMG_1492 IMG_1494
