to discover myself and open to the world where I can talk to a person who is from another country.
We do so by connecting children in artistic experience inspiring them to imagine a better future for themselves and their communities and providing them with the tools to help realize their aspirations.
While our priority is to serve the most disadvantaged children, making them aware of the new opportunities, we also believe that the project may also offer attractive perspectives and benefits for children from more stable and affluent backgrounds. Indeed, we think that the opportunity for children from various backgrounds to meet and develop friendships, give a promising foundation for peace and understanding.
One of the most striking things about the entire group of kids participating in the project is just how incredibly diverse they are in terms of geography, language, age, religion, and social background, as well as such elements as financial and family status and their sense of acceptance or exclusion from the society in which they live. This diversity is one of the most beautiful things about this project, and it creates both specific challenges and opportunities in the kids future lives.
Below you’ll find words and photos of our Brave Kids who will tell you about friendship in their own words.
