We at Make a Kid Smile are convinced that children who have learned about other children and cultural differences are less prone to start wars against each other. Therefore Make a Kid Smile requires that the schools who distribute our scholarships also have an international cooperation with at least one other school in the world. We evaluate these cooperation’s on a regular basis.
To help our schools get in contact with each other, we provide a network of buddy schools, so called Global Buddy Schools. Here the schools get help with finding projects that children in different parts of the world can work together with and in the end compare their living environments. Some project examples are:
- The trash project
- The water project
- The play and toy project
It could be as simple as children in the lower grades sending drawings to each other. Become a Global Buddy School.
