The students at Madison Central High School in Richmond, Kentucky, USA investigated the important concept of unity and love in collaboration with the Spring Board School in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Together they created an awareness campaign in regards to unity, and the students have stated the following in regards to the issue and their project:
“We wanted to focus on what unites people around the world. We felt that our differences were often pointed out but no one discusses our similarities. We created a mural to signify what we have in common.”
This student project was created as part of Campfire 2016, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in the US, Jordan, and Pakistan. Campfire is run by Global Nomads Group. Campfire is made possible thanks to the generous support of our partners The Bezos Family Foundation, an award from the Aspen Institute Stevens Initiative with support from the U.S. Department of State and the Bezos Family Foundation, and additional support from PhotoWings, the U.S. Embassy in Amman, Jordan, the U.S. Consulate in Lahore, Pakistan, and the Yahoo Employee Foundation.
