Global Citizen Kelowna is proud to present Global School House for Grade 6 students in the Central Okanagan. At the Global Schoolhouse, students will experience what life might be like at a school in a developing country.
Local nongovernmental organizations create school rooms where students are engaged about life in developing countries through interactive presentations that stimulate senses and move emotional meters. The presentations are designed to simulate developing country settings that will raise awareness and educate the students about issues of health, child labour, gender, and the lack of resources in many developing countries.

Students learn about barriers to education and gain a global perspective through the eyes of their peers in developing nations. The UN Millennium Development goals will be highlighted throughout the sessions.
