Celebrating International Day for Families from 15 – 30 May

Saturday, 14 May 2016 to Saturday, 28 May 2016

Let's celebrate holidays and cultural diversity this summer!

Culture is a strong part of our lives. It influences our views, values, hopes, loyalties, worries and fears. We are organizing a series of events for children in the age group of 5 to 15 years to help children understand and learn about diverse places, beliefs, cultures, foods and art forms practiced globally.
