The conference was great. It was all about poverty and children’s rights. I thought the title “Kidsview” really meant it beacause the kids got to share their points of view about world poverty.
I find it hard to believe that we are richer than 75% of the world with just clothing, beds, food and shelter, plus we have more. Only 12% of the world population has computers and 8% has internet access, which shows that we all have more than we need. A lot of us don’t even want to share.
After seeing the play about Gary’s and Aisa’s lives in the Philippines, I now think how ucky I am that I have the right to go to school, which is in a safe environment. I also thought about how lucky I am to live so close to my school.
The workshops really helped me to have a better understanding of what it is like to live with not much money and then what it is like to live the way I do with everything I need plus more.
I thought that the stories about children around the world who have helped to make a change, just proves that anyone small can make a bIG difference.
