The students at Greenup County High School in Greenup, Kentucky, USA, created an awareness campaign about racism in collaboration with The City School in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. The students have stated the following in regards to the issue and their project:
“This project is important to our group and community because it is an accepted stereotype in our area that needs addressed immediately.
We hope to achieve more awareness of exactly was racism is and how it is wrong. The newsletter addresses the problem of racism by providing more information about it.”
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.
