WWO x SoulCycle Fundraiser Challenge
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Dec 31, 2017
Worldwide Orphans (WWO) is partnering with SoulCycle for an epic event to raise awareness and funds in order to help the world's forgotten children.
WWO works to transform the lives of at-risk, vulnerable and orphaned children by providing access to medical care, education, and psycho-social support, helping them become healthy, independent, productive members of their communities and the world.
To date, WWO has placed 43 toy libraries in communities around the world. The toy library is a resource for children to become active agents in their own environment, and for parents, teachers, and other adults to develop the skills necessary to engage in play-based learning in their homes and classrooms. Each toy library is filled with 120 curated toys that are specifically chosen to support key child developmental domains, emphasizing the listening and language skills needed to succeed in school and beyond.
The rights of children to survive and develop to their full potential are embodied in our signature program, Element of Play (EOP)®. The EOP program brings art, music, dance, theater, reading, sport, play, and imagination to all of the children we serve. Using trademarked curriculum materials, we train adults from the community to be Element of Play® teachers. By facilitating a positive relationship between children and adults, we are able to change the trajectory of the lives of each person involved. Our vision is to implement thousands of Element of Play® sites around the world.
Please join our cause by helping us reach our goal so we can continue our important work in Bulgaria, Ethiopia, Haiti, Serbia, Vietnam, the US and beyond.
