The “My Dream Can” Program brings to life the story of The Girl Who Buried Her Dreams in a Can, a true story authored by Dr. Tererai Trent, beautifully illustrated by Dr. Jan Spivey Gilchrist. The goal is for each child to explore the world with their imagination, and have the courage to work towards achieving their dreams no matter what life hardships they might face.

The lesson plan includes four modules that are designed and aligned to meet Common Core Standards in English Language Arts (ELA):

1. CULTURAL PRIDE

Cultural pride is developed within a supportive environment that allows children to understand who they are in relation to the world they live.

2. SPIRIT OF RESILIENCE

The spirit of resilience is developed through an environment that allows children to cultivate resolute determination, cope with the realities of their adversities, and refuel energy for positive growth.

3. VISION AND HIGH EXPECTATIONS

When adults have a positive vision and high expectations of children, it fosters an environment where children may be able to benefit greatly and co-envision a positive future.

4. UBUNTU

Ubuntu, known in Africa as the essence of humanity, means “I am because we are” and it is the belief that no one person can be successful if all others in the community are not successful. It thrives in an environment that creates a common bond among us all despite race, gender, class, or background.
  • Targeted for students in K-7, the lesson plan, and related activities are also applicable to all grades even up to K-12 and can also be incorporated into any classroom settings.
  • The program includes online access to additional resources: Power Point slides, teacher/facilitator/instructor’s notes, handouts, and classroom and take-home activities.
  • The program has great potential to help inspire children to learn and achieve better grades despite overwhelming social and economic challenges. It will also contribute to enhanced emotional and social well being for each student.
  • With a focus on young girls and boys in inner cities in the U.S. and internationally, the lesson plan was carefully crafted with a universal message that will resonate with children around the globe, from America to Africa.
