Join us next Thursday June 16th as we hear from Darren Collins of Project HAND UP.

He has trained over 20,000 puppeteers in 49 states and over 15 countries!
He is currently the International Director for a non-profit in DeSoto, Texas called Project HAND UP. Project Hand Up is dedicated to writing, producing, distributing, and implementing HIV Prevention and AIDS Education puppet and magic shows in East Africa. These shows are designed to reach large audiences with basic health science education that would otherwise not be taught due to their sensitive subject matter.
