Michael commented on Compassion Education Corps

Hi Marilyn,
The program is very inspiring and I see the potential for the Charter for Compassion to play a role in having a positive impact on the lives of young people.  While I think the idea of focusing the programs on girls, I think in situations that changes the regular dynamics of the family, it is also a good opportunity to provide educations to young boys in order to prevent them from being influence by other potentially dangerous activities and it might help them support the continued education of girls. I also like the idea that the training is not just focused on survival since and more future based which could instill a sense of hope and resilience. I think expanding on that aspect could extend this idea beyond its initial deployment.
While electricity and technology will be a challenge, perhaps there is a way to get organizations, especially technical university to create a solar powered reader which could store the necessary information and instructions for the classes.
