ViceVerse + KidsPatch in Philadelphia!
A non-profit group called The Bright Lights Initiative runs programs for elementary aged school children in Philadelphia that aims to promote literacy, cultural awareness and a desire to learn.The program was organized in the Cecil B. Moore Recreation Center in North Philadelphia the area that was pretty run-down and maybe a tough place for kids to grow up. We have had opportunity to work and play with amazing kids creative, open and very communicative.
Much of the success of the Bright Lights Initiative can be attributed to a lady named Anne Guise, who was part of the civil rights movement and has traveled to Africa with the Bright Lights to teach them about their cultural heritage.
