Using GSD’s latest curriculum (India- Wings of Fire)  as a jumping off point, participants begin their journey in an Indian slum where under-educated and under-valued girls sit trapped in an unending cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and staggeringly high birthrates. Through a series of real-world adventure stories, videos, and photos, students gain an up-close view of a pressing global issue.

They ALSO meet the stars of the adventure— a group of Indian girls who are not only defying the odds by preventing early marriage, domestic violence, and child labor— but being the first ones in their community to enter college!

This engaging curriculum helps teens develop critical thinking skills to better understand the nuance of gender issues against a variety of cultural backdrops, engage in thoughtful dialog with their peers, and learn to build more equitable communities– globally as well as within their own classroom.

A dynamic way to end the school year... while meeting (and completeing!) teaching standards.
