Our co-op class discussed modern day slavery and watched Kumar’s story (a young boy who was a slave in a brick factory) from the dvd We Are Free (click on it to go the IJM store to buy)
We then made a poster showing Slavery/ Freedom by drawing or writing words…
And we handed out cups to collect change to help rescue those in slavery through IJM.
The program is called Loose Change to Loosen Chains. You can order the materials here.
I loved that the kids really took it to heart and was sharing with others about it and how we HAVE to help.
It’s so simple in a child’s eyes.
They need help. We can help. We need to do it.
How might the world be different if we kept that mentality?
