The students at Ramsey School in Ramsey, NJ, USA investigated the important issue of overcoming cultural barriers in collaboration with the Orbit International School for Boys in Khobar, Saudi Arabia. Together they created an awareness campaign about tolerance and understanding, and the students have stated the following in regards to the issue and their project:
“The problem revolving around foreign affairs with the United States and Saudi Arabia comes from the misunderstanding of religious views. This can be solved by the United States interacting more with Saudi Arabian people in order to put aside false assumptions and understand Wahhabism better."
This student project was created as part of YouthTalk 2016, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in the US and the Arab World. It is run by the Global Nomads Group, in partnership with Bridges of Understanding.
