Elevate is expanding its global reach with our curriculum in Spanish and French! I am excited to announce that after 4 months of the translation process, the Elevate Kids Entourage series premiered in French and Spanish. Entourage Kids is a movie themed series that teaches kids how to be the right kind of friend.
The journey of translating our curriculum started when Dr. Claude Thomas from C3Global asked what it would take to give Elevate to orphanages in Haiti. C3Global, Fellowship Church and many other churches partnered together after the Haiti Earthquake to provide food and supplies to over 50 orphanages, but we also wanted these kids to hear the life-changing message of Jesus.
A few conversations started among our staff and we started researching companies who would have the resources and desire to partner with us in this non-profit endeavor. We partnered with a company called Transperfect, an international multilingual translation and interpreting service. After months of praying and brainstorming, we decided to start translating into French and Spanish. And the process began!
Though it started as a simple prayer for the kids in Haiti, our prayer now is that children all around the world will hear about Jesus in their language, and learn how to apply the Bible to their daily lives in their own culture.
