Schools Without Borders

Schools Without Borders

Schools Without Borders' mission to empower girls in communities of color exposed to trauma through literature. Trauma manifests itself in many forms at the ecological level such as violence, abuse, bullying, poverty, and health disparities. The Healing through Literature project utilizes a public health approach to reduce social determinants of health  that often accompany trauma. New printed and Braille books that meet common core standards and writing workshops are provided to GIRLS! in urban and rural communities locally and internationally.
