Who are helping create powerful children in their worlds

Every so often, you may have asked yourself: "What can I, an individual, do to help?" We are told that one person can change the world (or at least our part of it). Here's how.



choose ways to power up the children, Parents, educators and therapists in your life!

“How wonderful that no one need wait a single moment to improve the world.” Anne Frank

sponsor aN EVENT! 

"Compassion is the radicalism of our time." the Dalai Lama

Create a Powerful party (at home, at a community get together, in a park, after school, or anywhere else suitable).

Invite your child's classmates, their friends, your nephews and nieces (and any available parents). 

Read, sing and dance Powerful with the children, with great enthusiasm!

Use this event to propel you into creating a Powerful home.

Share this website with other parents, and explain how they too can make a positive difference within their community.

Let the magic begin!



sponsor a classroom!

"Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher, can change the world."               Malala Yousafzai

Option one:

Speak to your child's teacher. Introduce them to this website. Ask if the teacher would be willing to read, sing and dance Powerful with her class. If your teacher is enthusiastic, gift them with a Powerful book (R200.00 excluding postage). Let the magic begin!

Option two:

Offer the school library a copy of this book. Introduce the librarian to this website. Ask if they would be willing to read, sing and dance Powerful during story time. If not, ask if they could ensure that each child had a chance to take it home. Ask also that they introduce fellow staff members to the book and this website. If they agree, gift them with a Powerful book (R200.00 excluding postage).

sponsor a school or institution!

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."                 Nelson Mandela

Chat with the principal of your child's school. Introduce them to this website and Powerful. If the principal is enthusiastic, offer to book and bring Alicia Thomas-Woolf to speak to the principal, teachers, board and/or parents regarding introducing Powerful into the school for younger and older students. If you are not in Johannesburg, sponsoring a school means covering:

* transportation costs outside Johannesburg (and, if necessary, accommodation.)

*A copy of Powerful for every classroom (R200.00 excluding postage).

If the principal then wishes to include Powerful into their syllabus, certification can be discussed.

Become a voice for POWERFUL!

If you have seen and experienced the impact yourself, you/your company can also be a voice for Powerful!  For example, Impact Learning, an innovative training company directed at Paediatric health care professionals, teachers and parents, is a strong voice for the efficacy of Powerful. 

Cara Weir-Smith, Director at Impact Learning, says: "We are an approved provider with the South African Council for Educators (SACE), encouraging all health professionals and educators to keep up to date with their CPD and CPTD points. We are proud to add Powerful to our offerings. As we have seen ourselves, this is a tool every paediatric therapist, educator and parent can use to increase confidence in children, giving them life skills from an early age. "
