EDUCATE. INFORM. EMPOWER
We strongly believe that our kids can make a difference in the world they live in. Travel is the best way to learn first hand about different countries, its beautiful people and its vibrant traditions. Unfortunately, travel is not an option for many of the kids we work with and mixed in with the positive stories they learn about their friends in other parts of the world, they also absorb negative cultural stereotypes perpetuated by the dark colonial years and the media.
Ignorance often breeds hate, fear and intolerance, leaving our kids with distorted views and unanswered questions about each other. We feel education, information and empowerment can make a difference to the lives of our kids and how they view others, and most importantly, how they view themselves.
We connect kids across borders and continents helping to build relationships through music, dance, photography, video, information technology and joint projects that encourage collaboration and open dialogue. Our kids learn quickly that, regardless of colour, tribe, gender and religion, they are second to no one.
“The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
