What is Worldwide Culture Swap?

For all those who have just joined us, here is a little recap of who we are and what we do. 

The Worldwide Culture Swap is a free initiative set up to promote cultural awareness and education for children. You can read about who we are here.

If you sign up for the Worldwide Culture Swap you will be put in a group with 5 families from around the world.  The objective of the swap is to share information with each family about the country in which you live (or that you will be representing) so that they can get a feel for the culture of that country. This is achieved by sending a package (usually addressed to the child or children) with bits and pieces that you have chosen to give a good overview of what it is like to live there.   So if you are in a group with 5 families you will send 4 packages (and receive 4).

On this website we will show pictures of the packages you send and receive.  You can link your blog posts to our monthly Culture Swapper link up so that we can feature them here and on our Facebook page.  You can also link up or send us pictures or articles to add from where you are from like a local recipe or craft.

Do you have any questions that you would like us to answer?  Just leave them in the comments.
