Thank you always for your invaluable help to make this project successful!

So much has happened in the last three months. The children and teachers we've been working with have changed, and we have changed with them. Through the principles and practice of Brain Education, they feel more comfortable in their bodies and more able to manage their stress. They released a lot of negative information and bad memories from the past. They rediscovered their life goals and made plans to achieve them.

The most important thing of all is that they did all of that with their own will and motivation, so in the end they felt so proud and a deep ownership of their changes. That's what Brain Education does. When they opened their bodies and focused inside, their brain remembered their innate desire to grow and be beneficial to all life, or in other words, to seek health, happiness and peace for themselves and others. As soon as they realize that, they naturally start to use their body and brain creatively in order to actualize it in their lives. This is what many of them shared in their notebooks during the final stages of breathing and meditation in the last month. Some of the children said they had never thought of their dreams in their lives, finally they could see what they wanted and gain the confidence to believe that if they keep working and use their brain well, it will happen. Becoming pilots, civil engineers, and ministers and presidents were some of their visions. Three of them said they wanted to be Brain Education trainers, and help many other people in the world and their African neighboring countries!

All the teachers and students received an official certification from IBREA. They were so happy and celebrated with dancing and singing. The teachers were given their certificate by the Deputy Minister of Instruction at the Ministry of Education. 

In the last month, we also had the chance to provide a Brain Education workshop to all the faculty members of the Teacher's College at the University of Liberia, the most prestigious university in the country.

IBREA has discussed with the Ministry of Education the expansion of Brain Education to 10 more schools and the country's 3 Teacher's Training institutes in Kakata, Zozor and Webbo during the course of a one-year program. Do you want to be a part of this? Please help bring the joy and hope of Brain Education to many other children in the country. Make your donation today! And tell many other people to do so!!! We will make you happy and proud of your choice!
