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 we have a priority to serve the most disadvantaged children, widening their sense of possibilities, we also believe in the value of the project to create perspective and benefit for children from more stable and affluent backgrounds. Indeed, we think that the opportunity for children from a range of backgrounds to meet and develop friendships serves as a foundation for greater peace and understanding.
One of the most striking things about the overall group of kids who participate in the project is just how incredibly diverse they are in terms of geography, language, age, religion, and social background, including elements like 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 the project, and it creates both specific challenges and opportunities in kids future lives.
Below you’ll find words and photos of our Brave Kids who will tell you about friendship with their own words.
