Thank you to Rich Lehrer, Sven Holch and the Brookwood School in Massachusetts who paid the licensing fee that allowed the movie to be screened for our students.The film was shown at 4 schools and generated many excellent discussions and positive feedback from teachers and students. The Kasiiis Project plans to join Brookwood School  in participating in International Day of the Girl on October 11th.
