Our vision is to help children discover what it is like to live in other countries around the world. Through pictures of real children, kids can learn about other children’s daily activities, dress, play, education, food, home life, language and special features about the location where they live. Our hope is that by learning about other cultures, kids can grow up more aware and tolerant of their neighbors around the globe.
