Discovering Friends Around the World through ChildFund

Do children from different parts of the globe live, play and relate to their world in the same way?

To answer this question, ChildFund facilitated a Friends Around the World project with the Richmond FRIENDS Association for Children.

The project connected two schools in Africa with a school in Richmond, Va. All three schools were asked to document interactions among classmates and provide an overview of life in their communities.

The purpose of the project was to open windows into the lives of children living in very different parts of the world.

This video, which captures highlights from the friendship project, provides insights into what the children learned about their similarities and differences when it comes to school, play time, music and daily life.
