This is such a incredible project. These kids live in Brazil. These elderly folks live in a retirement home in Chicago. They're worlds apart, but they do have one thing in common: the ability to connect in a really unique way.
I just shared this with some global librarians. I think it would be a great after school project, too, for kids who just want to practice informally!
@flymetothemoon I had a really similar experience volunteering; I'd feel bad leaving because they wouldn't want to stop talking~
I remember volunteering at a senior home when I was younger and the people who lived there would talk my ear off. This is an awesome program!
It's great to see that even though they are from completely different backgrounds, generations, and countries, they can still connect on such a human level.
What a great way to connect people around the world! So touching. Thanks for sharing.
