The students at Body County High School in Ashland, Kentucky, USA investigated the important issue of misconceptions in collaboration with the Army Public School Faisal in Karachi, Pakistan. Together they created an awareness campaign about the problem, and the students have stated the following in regards to the issue and their project:
“We learned a lot from our partners, especially because this was our first time meeting anyone from Pakistan. After learning about their community and culture, breaking down misconceptions, and diving into current events, we found various ways to show our newfound connectedness to our partners through art and photography.”
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.
