FALCON Primary School students participating in after-school activities with Camp Australia are creating handmade gifts for disadvantaged primary school students in Bangladesh.

Camp Australia staff are coordinating a Junior Global Citizenship Program involving students creating calico school bags, bookmarks and friendship bracelets for underprivileged Bangladeshi children.

The program was developed in partnership with global charity Oxfam Australia.

Camp Australia chief executive Adam Pease said the program encouraged respect for cultural diversity.

“The Camp Australia Foundation wants to empower our own students to do something positive about some of the challenges disadvantaged children face,” he said.

“This awareness-raising initiative will help children in Camp Australia’s care see themselves as global citizens who can contribute to a peaceful and sustainable world.”
