One curriculum book in the hands of a teacher costs only $20 and prepares her or him to teach 20 to 30 children a year. One new article costs $1,000 to create and distribute, and reaches over 1,000 adults who each learn how to make at least one child safer – and is available in our free online library for year to come. See our Donation Drive options for ways your contribution can have an impact.
