Creating the Next Generation of Global Citizens

Backpack the World, we offer cultural geography-based activity kits for children aged 9 to 15 years old. Cultural geography is what helps us make sense of our world by showing the connections between people and places.

Dear parents, caregivers and educators,

I am thrilled to introduce Backpack the World, a transformative cultural geography-based activity kit designed for children aged 9 to 15 years old. As a parent myself, I understand the importance of equipping our children with the knowledge and skills they need to navigate our increasingly interconnected world. With Backpack the World, we aim to ignite a sense of global citizenship and cultivate curiosity, empathy, and cultural understanding in our young explorers.

In today's fast-paced and competitive world, it is crucial for our children to grasp the connections between people and places. By delving into cultural geography, they will gain a deeper appreciation for the diverse tapestry that shapes our planet. Unfortunately, the study of geography and other cultures has been sidelined in recent years, leaving a knowledge gap among our young learners. But together, we can bridge this gap and empower children to face the challenges of the 21st century with confidence.

Every month, you will receive an exciting activity kit that focuses on a different country. These kits are meticulously crafted to provide an immersive experience, combining informative resources, authentic products, and engaging hands-on activities. By exploring the wonders of each destination, young adventurers will develop a keen sense of curiosity, empathy, and a broader worldview. Our ultimate goal is to nurture the next generation of global citizens who are not only knowledgeable but also compassionate and culturally aware.

As a firm believer in the transformative power of travel, I have witnessed firsthand the positive impact it can have on our children. By exposing them to different cultures and fostering their awareness of global events, we open their minds to a world of possibilities. From lively dinner conversations to forging deep connections across borders, these experiences create lasting memories and shape their perspectives in remarkable ways.

Join me in embracing Mark Twain's timeless words, "Travel is fatal to bigotry, far-sightedness, and discrimination." Together, let's embark on this extraordinary journey with Backpack the World and inspire children to become compassionate, culturally aware global citizens.

I invite you to enjoy the transformative power of travel and exploration alongside your children. Together, we can shape a brighter future for our global community.

Warm regards,

Nancy Dellamore
