In the past few years, our little red dot had been making strides towards childhood education. While the focus might had been on early childhood development, development for kids in their pre teens would be important too some contend. And we are not referring to enrichment classes such as music, abacus etc.
It was thus an interesting article (here) for us to chance upon again.
Now those of you with kids hear this. Before you run off and book the next journey, heed well to do sufficient research. For aside from ensuring that the experience will indeed be educational for your children, it should also be safe. For many of the places where these can be had are also in the third world. Not only would personal safety be a consideration but also risks from diseases caused by food and water.
Think about it. Imagine being able to facilitate your child to understand that in the wide world out there, that remains many many folks living in squalid conditions. Oh fortunate
we they all are!
But would it be possible to also experience the same in your own home country? Chances are the answer being a big Yes! We are not sure about where you live. But in our little red dot, there remains pockets of poverty. Unbelievable but true and that is a sad fact of life. Perhaps that can be of consideration.
Do you have children? Well we don’t have any. We wrote about getting them to be a ‘travel agent’ too (here). What do you think about such an experience for them?
