Many of the children we work with do not have ready access to television and other forms of media, yet they are extremely interested in learning about other countries and cultures and the way we live. On the flip side, we believe that this cultural understanding is of enormous value to children in the UK; enabling them to gain an understanding and appreciation of how others live, which can have a significant impact on a child’s outlook. The project not only involves pen and paper, but also ‘video letters,’ where the children get to talk to each other in a ‘virtual’ setting. You do not have be a sponsor or contribute financially to Freedom to Learn in order to take part. Please feel free to contact us and we will let you know how you can get involved.
