Behind every smile, every boundary, and every Kidpower Trash Can you can see in this video is a story of Kidpower community around the world taking action to put safety first – through a pandemic, across languages, between cultures, and around borders to connect over a shared commitment to safety for everyone.

Some of the magic in this video is easy to see: the power of a boundary, the confidence in a stride, the joy that Kidpower sparks wherever it goes.

The most powerful magic is invisible.

You can’t see how dedicated Liz was to learning how to teach Kidpower – and you can only imagine how hard it was for her to get training since she lives in Cuba.

You can’t see how committed Gisella was to train Liz – from Argentina. You can’t see the hours they spent practicing together – on WhatsApp, the only reliable digital pathway connecting the two.

Watch now to see confident Lebanese educators – who work in refugee camps – practice safety skills together with Zeina of Kidpower Lebanon, refusing to let the hardships of a national economic collapse or a global pandemic stop them from learning how to keep kids safe.

As we look ahead to a new year and the new challenges it will bring, your donation will help Kidpower continue to provide life-saving training and resources.

Please donate today! All gifts through December 31 will be doubled by our Leadership Circle.

Your donation powers our work!
