Oct 4, 2011. Today nearly 100 students from Bethel College participated in the launch of our campaign “Shout Out… So She Can Be Heard!” The objective was not only to inform students about female infanticide, feticide and gender discrimination against the Indian girl child but directly connect each student with an orphan girl from Bethel AFC in Danishpet, India.
The campaign is also being launched on several other college campuses as well as with university students in Nagpur, India.
Dr. Ted Bryant Speaks to Bethel College Students
Dr. Ted Bryant and his wife Angela shared their personal experiences about India and how the students could have impact even from 9,000 miles away. Several Bethel College students also spoke on how their trips to India had a profound impact on their world view and a better understanding of the issues in a developing country.
The event allowed students to;
1. Empower A Child – wrote a personal note, created a friendship Indian bracelet and recorded a video message that will be delivered to the girls living at Bethel AFC.
2. Influence A Friend – students jumped online to learn more about the issues and then connected with other students and friends to share what they had learned.
3. Impact A Nation – each student signed a resolution that will be sent to the US State Department with the goal of 5,000 signatures
During the internet cafe experience, two co-ed students used their skills to send a “Shout Out” with a YouTube message.
It was a good day at Bethel College!
