Born to Fly anti-trafficking course
The Born to Fly wordless book is an illustrated version of the story of a caterpillar called Blossom and her journey to find the Moonbeam Tree. Through the characters she meets along the way and the decisions she makes, the story helps children and young people to explore the issue of human trafficking.
The Born to Fly curriculum helps facilitators to explore Blossom’s story as part of a prevention programme. It has separate material for young children and young people. The Soaring Higher curriculum provides additional material for churches and Christian schools. Both are currently available in English, Bisayan (Philippines), Chinese, Hindi, Indonesian, Nepali, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Thai.
For more information on how these materials have been used across the world see page 4. All the materials can be downloaded free of charge but you will need to register on the Born to Fly website to receive a password to access the documents: https://born2fly.org
You can print directly from the site or download a PDF file. Unfortunately, the materials are not currently available in a printed format. You can also contact the organisation by post:
