Help us support parents, educators, and caregivers around the world to raise global citizens who are confident and excited about interacting with diverse others.
Why this work is needed
The pandemic has shown us again how far apart we are. Only together there is a chance to build back a better world that includes everyone.
US organizations spend $8 billion annually on diversity training, however, companies are not more diverse and hate crimes continue to rise. Globe Smart Kids works on tackling othering before it begins, by intervening in the early years.
Our award-winning One Globe Kids program is designed to provide children with their first intercultural friendship experiences, the program helps children grow up with open attitudes towards difference and diversity.
We are a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Our work is supported by the contributions of volunteers, foundations and individual donors. Your donation will help the creation of new content and ongoing research. This year we are working on:
- New Story – My Palestine: Layth
- New Story – My Norway: Nora
- First resources available in Spanish
- New education resources – Norway and Palestine
- Technology update – access in all browsers
- Research comparing our impact with 3 other anti-bias interventions
- Free online access to the full One Globe Kids program for home schoolers due to the COVID-19 pandemic
How we know it works
One Globe Kids’ content was produced in collaboration with psychologists and is built on a foundation of over 70 years of scientific research on intergroup contact theory, cross-group friendship, and imagined contact.
From ongoing research with the University of Kent (UK) and the Université Catholique de l’Ouest (France) we know that One Globe Kids positively influences the attitude of children toward people from other backgrounds.
One Globe Kids has received important recognition including:
