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.

The program’s 60-90 minute disaster preparedness lesson, which is delivered by Red Cross staff and volunteers, is designed to teach students (ages 8-11) about local hazards, basic psychosocial coping skills, and general preparedness actions.
