Helping parents & educators learn about the importance of nurturing for childhood brain development

Blue Butterfly worked with our partners Jako Media and InnovEd in Haiti to produced a Haitian Kreyol version of this video introduction to the importance of nurturing in the healthy development of children’s brains for the Fostering Resilience Initiative at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana (USA). It is based on a video originally produced in English by the Center for the Developing Child at Harvard University.

The team not only translated the video into Kreyol, we also included footage of Haitian families, ensuring that Haitian viewers see people and settings on screen that are relevant to their daily lives. “This video exemplifies Blue Butterfly’s core principle that all our content is culturally appropriate,” says Dr. Charlotte Cole, Blue Butterfly’s co-executive director for programs.
