Project EMBRACE engages young people from different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs in an extended exploration of who they are, how they live and the problems they face. Their ideas and thoughts are recorded in drawings and paintings and shared through technology. Our goal is to promote intercultural communication, understanding and cooperation as the norm in our rising generation of global leaders.
