Bridges to Understanding
October 1, 2010
Bridges to Understanding is tapping into an essential 21st century need, Global citizenship! In this techno/ internet era the world is shrinking and more and more we are having to interact as global citizens. Giving our kids the tools and skills to appreciate and understand other cultures and realize our common humanity is vital to our Country's economic future and National Security. Giving our U.S. kids an avenue to expand their understanding of the world and how we are much more alike than different as a people is invaluable. It goes without saying that the kids who are living in the reciprocating countries also receive these same benefits but would otherwise have little to no opportunity to gain those tech skills and learn about our country 1st hand.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Seeing the videos that kids (from all over the world) have made and realizing how powerful the act of story telling really is. Witnessing and expressing a "story" can and does transform lives; and therefore, the world.
