As an early childhood educator of more than 20 years, I wholeheartedly endorse the Little Ripples Early Education Project. As a member of Portland, Oregon's Never Again Coalition, I am gratified to see such a meaningful and effective way of helping children thrive under such difficult conditions in refugee camps. The level of professionalism you have brought to this project is impressive. I think that an especially strong point is the training and use of women in the camps as teachers. This is a model that works! In our work for the Never Again Coalition, it is so discouraging to see the trauma left behind when women and children are victims of genocide and war. Your program is a shining beacon of hope for a better future for so many. Keep up the great work!
