On behalf of Operation HOPE and Global Dignity, I am pleased to announce that HOPE has educated over 197,185 students in A Course in Dignity, including 20,000 in South Africa alone. These sessions were taught by a total of 7,020 HOPE Corps volunteers in the US and 1,270 in South Africa.
In 2010, Operation HOPE added A Course in Dignity as an additional module to the award winning Banking on Our Future curriculum and is now taught to every student in our BOOF program. This course speaks to kids about the importance of dignity and how they can incorporate dignity into their daily lives.
This course is also taught to youth around the world as part of Global Dignity, which John Hope Bryant is a co-founder. Since 2006, we have educated over 300,000 youth in over 50 countries around the world. Join us on October 17, 2012 to celebrate Global Dignity Day.
