Possibly the most talked about event on the schedule, the Global Children’s Villages is back in 2014 with new country activities! It is a family event with activities geared especially for the elementary ages. Come and explore the culture, diversity, and hope of children in our global community! By playing traditional games and crafts from several countries, cultures and regions, children realize what kids around the world have in common: they all want to have fun and they all want to make a difference. Most importantly, this event teaches young children that through their actions and teamwork, they have the power to make the world a better place.
Families can choose to attend only the country booths or, if they want to explore the Millennium Development Goal #1 - Reducing poverty - they can visit the simulated slum. The slum illustrates the many places in every continent where the lack of resources limits children’s’ daily activities and life may seem hopeless to the observer. But no – there is hope! Children can observe the work of the slum dwellers as they build their community and create projects to improve their material circumstances. Children can support these projects by contributing coins earned in the Children’s village, and take inspiration to consider what they can do to improve their own communities.
We are ALL Global Citizens!
