I've been with Global Indiana for a little over 2 years now and have been amazed with their impact. In the words of so many, Global Indiana really does change lives. I grew up in Indiana. Although I attended one of the best schools this state has to offer, the lack of diversity among students and curricula was still very apparent. I have seen how the experiences that Global Indiana provides has opened the eyes of educators, not just in Indiana or even the United States, but overseas. It is creating a new movement that calls for education reform and the investment in our children. This movement is now sparking government involvement and international recognition for our organization. Now I've seen American children and Chinese children forming friendships and learning from one another despite cultural and language barriers.
