Paul and I would like to experience the world from the perspective of others, to understand, learn, share and to contribute. Children experience the world from a position of vulnerability and innocence so understanding the world from their perspective would be important to us. We have chosen to support UNICEF as it is a programme that provides humanitarian support.
Humanitarianism is a moral of kindness, benevolence, and sympathy extended to all human beings. No distinction is to be made on the grounds of gender, sexual orientation, race, caste, age, religion, ability, or nationality.
Exploring the world, we seek to “see it as it is” and not be influenced by the media or our own fears. We seek to experience the world from a humanitarian perspective and share what we see, learn and experience.
UNICEF is represented in 190 countries. We have contacted UNICEF Australia who have supplied us with the contact details and advice for visiting UNICEF sites across the globe. We hope to visit, help and document our contact with children through UNICEF across the world.
Exploring a child’s perspective in the countries we visit will challenge us to consider those most vulnerable and innocent. We hope to help where we can, understand and share those children’s experiences of the world. Children are our future. Understanding how they see the world is a way of understanding and influencing our future.
I have a dream of writing a children’s book, documenting the world through the eyes of a child, capturing children’s fascination and fostering their acceptance of the different people in our world. I believe that if we can positively influence children, we can change the world.
