What we do

Chrysalis Campaign, Inc. Leverages learning methods and technology to transform people lives. In 2003 a group of women in a small bush village asked Richard if he would tell their story of who they are. This came from the experience of missioners not really understand the lives of poor African. From that request evolved 8,000 photographs, videos and three donation books for NGOs who transform poverty. After returning to the US it became apparent that the learning/education experiences of entitlement and poverty are almost polar opposites and the reason why many poverty programs fail. It also the reason why emersion learning, such Canada's Harlem Children Center work.

In 2010 UNESCO awarded a small grant to develop and test this "I am Africa. This is my Story..." program. 

Chrysalis Campaign has engaged in a number of transformation projects such as learning centers for the Bridgeport Rescue Mission including a collaborative life skill curriculum for homeless women called "Discover Your Gifts."
