Deadline: 2 December 2015
The Global Disaster Preparedness Center (GDPC) is currently implementing an international pilot of The Pillowcase Project, a youth preparedness program designed and used by American Red Cross domestic chapters. The curriculum aims to empower children with the confidence and skill-set to take appropriate actions in reducing the potential impact of disaster.
The GDPC is looking to collaborate with research partners in a ‘Comparative Review of The Pillowcase Project.’ The findings will help guide future Pillowcase Project developments, adaptability, and integration within national contexts and ultimately within The Comprehensive School-Safety Framework.
GDPC is a joint venture of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and American Red Cross, works with the Red Cross and Red Crescent (RC/RC) network in development and delivery of youth disaster preparedness education.
