It’s true. Maybe you’ve even noticed. The Humanity Project is growing, expanding — and reaching out to more people than ever. Our signature program remains Anti-bullying Through The Arts, of course, and we’re committed to making sure this effective anti-bullying system reaches as many children as possible, now and for years to come. But we’re also connecting in new ways, even going international as part of our efforts. Before we tell you the latest news on this front, we should explain a little more. Remember what our mission says: “To create and implement innovative programs that teach children and adults how to use cooperation and social connection for individual development and grassroots community improvement.” We take those words seriously. And this means that as the Humanity Project matures, we are always looking for more ways to spread our ideas about people connecting with people for the benefit of all. Win-win, as we always say. As part of this, we have formed a wonderful blog and photo exchange with the Egyptian Association for Educational Resources, a respected and non-religious nonprofit organization based in Cairo. You may recall that we posted their first blog and photo recently, a story about E-ERA’s efforts to help young Egyptians gain confidence by testing their outdoor skills. (You’ll find it at this link: http://thehumanityproject.com/2011/09/07/shared-value-egyptian-style … Or just scroll down a few blogs to see the post, “Shared Value, Egyptian Style.”) Now the Humanity Project’s first blog is posted on E-ERA’s site. How cool is that? Yep, the Humanity Project is on an Egyptian home page for people there to read about our ideas and our work. You can see that blog at this link: http://egypt-era.org/?p=1309 Thanks as always to our friends at E-ERA, Dalia Khalil and Sandra Nasr. These are caring, compassionate women who work hard to help young people in Egypt and now want to help the Humanity Project connect with folks there too. We look forward to a long, productive friendship with them, all of us trying to advance the idea that human beings do a lot better when we work together.
