This year Poland hosts kids from Columbia, Salvador, India, Kazakhstan, Estonia, Peru, South Korea, Kenia, Palestine and Georgia.

Some of them are orphans, partly disabled or traumatized by political and social conflicts. By collaborating around a performance project, the participants develop the ability to communicate, learn to understand difference and celebrate common experience. The project helps children to make positive steps towards transformation in their own lives and in their communities in the long-term.
