Three organizations illustrate how technology tools can blaze a path to deeper relationships and broader horizons. Educurious combines project-based learning, technology, and connections with real-world experts. Expert professionals serve as mentors to help guide students through projects using video and other online collaboration tools. Global Nomads Group deploys interactive videoconferencing, webcasting, social networking, gaming, and participatory filmmaking to facilitate collaborative projects among classrooms in the U.S. and abroad. The organization designs semester and year-long virtual exchange programs between students in North America and their peers in Sub-Saharan Africa, Central and South East Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. In a similar vein, the International Education and Resource Network (iEARN) facilitates projects worldwide, enabling students and teachers to design and participate in global projects as part of their regular classroom and afterschool programs.

I am Azima Dhanjee, KL-YES student from Pakistan. I am currently residing in Royal, Arkansas and am enrolled in the 11th grade at Lake Hamilton High School. Belonging to a big city back home in Pakistan, a lot of people claimed that living in Arkansas was going to be difficult because it is hard for a city girl to live in the country.
However, now I am proud to show all these people that in my first three months in the United States, I still made the best out of all the blessings Arkansas has and am confident in claiming that Arkansas is one of the best states with the friendliest people, which makes my life over here the best.

This issue of the newsletter marks the end of the 19th year that KIDS has been in existence. By the same token, it takes us into 2014 and the 20th anniversary of the program.
As we look back it is hard to imagine that KIDS continues to flourish and remain relevant. The first three articles in this issue deal with KIDS and one in particular asks for your support to ensure that we have funds that will allow young people to understand that they can make a difference in their community and world.
After the Thanksgiving week, which for many in America is symbolized by bounty, excess, and consumption of all stripes, I was struck by the value of seeing how people live in less wealthy parts of the world. Living on One Dollaris a full-length documentary made by four college students who traveled to rural Guatemala to live on just a dollar a day. Upon their return, they created Living On One, a nonprofit to raise awareness and inspire action around global issues like hunger and poverty -- and started by publishing the Change Series of video shorts.
