URI Kids was originally developed for the United Religions Initiative in 2002 by Debbie Gibbs and Dana Isaacs, educators from the United States. Debbie, a lifetime Episcopalian, has a deep interest in developing ways for children to learn more about their own religions and that of others. Dana's interest stems from a strong Jewish background and a love of helping students discover more about who they are and who they want to be.
