Lately at SFK….

Hello SFK Community,

Have you noticed a change on our website?

We have a new short URL and a simple sharp logo!

We want every child to have access to this incredible program.

For that to be possible, we must appeal to teachers and parents. Our image matters in the process of winning people’s trust. So, guided by branding and marketing experts, we decided to make this change in order to attract a broader audience.

The new logo embodies the professionalism and gravitas that parents need to see when they are choosing something as significant as an SEL program for their child. Using the acronym in place of the full length name also removes the Often uncertain response many people have to the word “spirituality”. Please visit the new and improved “Who We Are” section on the website to see how we are address and destigmatize the word “spirituality” even further.

Though the logo has changed our name has not. We are still Spirituality for Kids International, Inc. Our lessons and the core Of Our program remain steady and strong. We are simply making the changes required to grow effectively and improve more lives.

We appreciate your partnership in this important pursuit!

News of the Day!

WHAT A NIGHT!

SFK took the stage at the Fashion Setters Gala event with the message that ALL CHILDREN ARE AT RISK, regardless if they are from an affluent family in Beverly Hills, or the streets of Sao Paolo, and need the same set of tools to face life’s obstacles with strength and courage.

Guests enjoyed delicious food, drinks, music, comedy and fabulous couture by fashion icon Elie Tahari, Amanda Valentine, ASbyDF, Romeo & Juliet Couture and many more, surrounded by NFL all-star Terrell Owens and comedian Eddie Griffin.

For more details see this WRITE UP by a fashion insider from ApparelNews California.

We want to say a special thank you to all of those who pitched in to make this event a reality. It was inspiring and humbling to be surrounded by such a creative, determined and generous group of SFK supporters.

THANKS TO OUR GENEROUS DONORS – SFK IS ON THE GROUND IN EAST AFRICA!!!

Many of you may remember Leonidas Ndayizeye

He runs a Ministry in Rwanda. In his search for tools to better the lives of the children in his community he came across SFK. Thanks to the ongoing support Of our donors we were able to send him the materials and the DVD player needed to show them to his community. Since then the reach has grown three fold! Now ministries in Rwanda, Burundi and Uganda have gotten access to the materials. Teachers, parents and students are unanimously grateful and seeing positive changes in their lives.

He is being asked to do more and more trainings for teachers!  School principals are prepared to set aside four hours for SFK per week – when they receive the needed materials. His vision is to open a dedicated SFK School in each of the three locations! To accommodate the growing demand, they requested more Guidebooks, Lightbooks and DVDs. We also sent two laptops so his teachers can play the DVDs in more classrooms, and a camera so he can capture pictures of the classes as they learn and change and grow.

East Jerusalem

Thanks to a grant from the Ted Arison Fund, SFK Israel is starting to implement the program with 1500 students, in 53 classes in East Jerusalem. This is a HUGE undertaking and a wonderful milestone for SFK.

This wasn’t an easy process, but with the blessings and assistance Of the Palestinian Authority and the Jerusalem Education Department, the SFK program is now in 13 schools!

We are thrilled and honored to show you these pictures from our first class at the Kofrakab Boys School. It is cause for celebration.

Brazil – A dedicated volunteer brought SFK classes to a group of at-risk children in the Botucatu area Of Sao Paolo. All of the children come from low-income families, most Of them of single parents or incarcerated siblings. Thanks to the efforts this volunteer, the children are now learning “Winning in the Game Of Life”!
