Our Impact

Since its launch in 2017, the HDC continues to make its mark in the lives of students and teachers.

Early Pilots of the HDC took place across the US, Saint Lucia, Mexico, and the Philippines.

Since then, the HDC has been implemented in formal and non formal classroom settings across Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and North America.

The HDC has earned government approval from Croatia and the Philippines and has been selected for national implementations in Nigeria and Tanzania. HDC is currently available in English, Spanish and Hungarian with other translations currently underway.

 

HDC is 100% human development. 

 But don’t just take our word for it – hear what teachers and students have to say about this life-changing curriculum!

 

HDC students experience increased
self-confidence and positive
behavior change.

It inspires and motivates

"Everything has its price, like plants and animals, but we humans are worth the infinite.”

Student, Mexico City

It instills identity and worldview

“In HDC class we learn about what it means to be human; we talk about the rational and sensitive powers, and the fact that we are subjects and not objects.”

It instills identity and worldview

And leads to excellent decision-making

“Human Dignity is the reason why I can be the best I can be.”

4th grader, Mexico pilot

“The Human Dignity Curriculum has helped both the children we serve, and their teachers, develop a clear understanding of what it really means to be human, and a deep sense of meaning and purpose.”

“Having reviewed the programme, I wholeheartedly endorse its implementation and teaching, and I urge you to consider bringing the programme to your school in the coming scholastic year.”

“I think [the HDC] is very relevant, especially for a community in a very depressed area sometimes neglected by the government…through this workshop at least they know that although their environment is like that, they have dignity. They are important…that their dreams are valid.”

Executive Administrator

The curriculum has also garnered its fair share of praise from press and research articles.
