Big Dreams Bloom™ features Rigoberta Menchu in our weekly virtual HERstory live classroom. Your little girl will truly be inspired by the accomplishments of this powerful female pioneer & leader.
“I am like a drop of water on a rock. After drip, drip, drip, dripping in the same place, I begin to leave a mark in many people’s hearts.”
Rigoberta Menchú Tum is a Guatemalan feminist of K’iche’ background and human rights activist from Guatemala. Menchú has dedicated her life to publicizing the rights of Guatemala’s Indigenous peoples during and after the Guatemalan Civil War (1960–1996), and to promoting Indigenous rights internationally.
She received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1992 and the Prince of Asturias Award in 1998, in addition to other prestigious awards. Menchú is a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador. She ran for president of Guatemala in 2007 and 2011, having founded the country’s first Indigenous political party.
Learning from HERstory
Through popular children’s literature focused on HERstory, we’ll explore the lives of influential women, such as Roberta Menchu as well other powerful women, from artists to activists, explorers to engineers who followed their dreams and changed the world. Together, we’ll follow up with book club style discussions and complete science, art, and maker-style STEM projects as a learning extension. Program materials and discussions are age appropriate and controversy-free, focusing solely on the success stories and achievements of great women in history.
Big Dreams Bloom™ students participate in fun and engaging at-home activities that are relevant to each week’s HERstory lesson.
My daughter absolutely LOVES the Big Dreams Bloom program. She has done ithe five week program three times and each session offers something unique and inspiring. She’s gained so much confidence. We couldn’t be happier.
