Mimi commented on Compassion Education Corps

Hi Marilyn,

I love this idea. I especially like the way that you propose implementing the program (student directed, led by people from the community and in the native language, involving older students with younger children as well as with corps members). I believe that this will be very effective. You propose to work where the Charter has multiple partners. I think a strength of the Charter lies in the robustness of its network, and by having partners across the globe the Charter has the insight necessary to create and develop relevant content and processes for the program you offer.

My main question lies in the program or curriculum itself – does the Charter intend to create a standard curriculum that can be replicated or revised depending upon geographic area, or is a new curriculum built from scratch in each geographic area the Charter aims to serve (informed by specific needs)? Does the Charter provide material? It seems that this hits on one of your questions too, as stated in the section “What are some of your unanswered questions about the idea” (“what parts of what we do can be replicated in other geographic areas; can there be a template through which we can start a new process”)

This is great!!!
