Explaining some of the big issues in the world to children isn’t always easy but we believe that children, with their incredible sense of injustice, can grow up being active global citizens and can play their part to change the world.
Each month we will provide new resources to help you teach the children in your church about what life is like for millions of people all around the world and show them what they can do to make a difference.
Ideal for use with children aged approximately 7 to 11 in Sunday groups, uniformed organisations and after-school clubs.
