These kits are designed to expose your child to various topics while inspiring curiosity about others – be it their life circumstances, where they live, and more. In addition to engaging your child’s playful side, he or she will also fine tune their fine motor skills.
Each kit is intended for one child only. The recommended age range is from three to seven. Parental guidance is recommended, especially with reading. As stated above, the first kit includes an airport visit. All subsequent kits include one country visit. All sales are final. All subscriptions are automatically renewed. You can cancel anytime.
Note: All of our products subtly generate talking points for you to discuss with your little one. Some of these points include: culture, race, diversity, language, geography, food, poverty, and kindness. The aim of Our Friends Afar is to teach children that although we are all different and unique, we are all the same. It’s our belief that open-minded and empathetic children lead to a more peaceful, loving, and connected future. THIS is our goal!
Feel good about your purchase. Ten percent of profits from all Our Friends Afar sales will be donated to RAICES, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees. Did you know that immigrants facing deportation in immigration court do not have the right to a lawyer if they cannot afford one. No matter what your political views are, I am sure you feel the same: that is not okay; that is not America. I imagine you too are heartbroken for these separated families and children in detention centers. Hopefully our donations can play a role in helping these families and individuals.
