Changing the Story Coloring Book
This easy-to-use coloring book introduces children to the way World Renew helps families living in poverty. It invites them to interact with a real life story through learning and giving to others. Great for elementary level.

 

Middle School (Grade 6-8)

A Town Called Hope
What is hope, and how do we help people achieve it? These are just a couple of questions posed in this 4-page brochure. Intended to get young people thinking and talking about global poverty, this brochure provides an excellent illustration of how change can occur in a community in need. Follow one village as it goes from poverty to a "town called hope." The brochure also includes case studies from World Renew's programs and a few discussion questions to get conversations going. Ideal for middle school or high school classes.

 

High School (Grade 9 - 12)

Live Just.ly
In partnership with Micah Challenge, World Renew has developed an in-depth scriptural and practical study on advocacy, prayer, consumption, generosity, creation care, and relationships. The nine sessions, complete with videos, can each stand on their own or be used together, culminating in the development of a justice action plan for your class. Learn more at worldrenew.net/livejustly and order books for your classroom.

God Created Us Equal
God created us equal, but we don’t all have equal opportunities in life. This series highlights global inequality around four topics: food, money, health, and water. Resources include four 2-minute videos and a thoughtful discussion guide. Great for classroom discussions. Download these resources online at worldrenew.net/createdequal or order them below.

Climate Conversations
For millions of subsistence farmers in Kenya, climate change is not a political debate. It is a reality in which adaptation can mean the difference between life and death. The Climate Conversation: Kenya video series is a chance to move past the white noise and to get up close and personal with the issues of climate change and environmental stewardship. It is a chance to meet people, not statistics; to hear stories, not arguments. It is an invitation to a conversation. Use the four Climate Conversations videos along with the discussion guide to engage your students more deeply in the issue of climate change.
