It’s not always possible for young children to have cross-group friends. They may live in an area where the opportunity to make friends with someone outside their group doesn’t present itself often, if ever. Maybe it is not encouraged by the adults in their lives. Maybe there is no time, budget, or guts to travel to new places. Or maybe it’s because other kids live far away and don’t speak the same language.
We use imagined contact with friends around the globe to help make children world-wise.
We are curious to know what you do.
Engage with us on social media (@oneglobekids) and share your tips and experiences helping prepare children for the diverse future that awaits. We look forward to learning together. Support us by sharing our posts, our story (TEDx: How a child’s imagination can fight prejudice), and our One Globe Kids program.
