Our Impact

Since its launch in 2017, the HDC continues to make its mark in the lives of students and teachers.

Early Pilots of the HDC took place across the US, Saint Lucia, Mexico, and the Philippines.

Since then, the HDC has been implemented in formal and non formal classroom settings across Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and North America.

The HDC has earned government approval from Croatia and the Philippines and has been selected for national implementations in Nigeria and Tanzania. HDC is currently available in English, Spanish and Hungarian with other translations currently underway.


HDC is 100% human development.
