The Global Connections and Exchange (GCE) program utilizes technology to create an American presence in areas where citizens have little opportunity to travel or participate in exchange programs. Through webchats and discussion boards, foreign youth participate in dialogue with American peers about their lives, families and communities. In addition, a theme-based curriculum will increase understanding of issues relevant to both U.S. and overseas participants. Each regional program also captures the spirit of activism through extracurricular projects that harness the energies of youth to affect positive change. This grant will fund three Global Connections and Exchange programs ($220,000 per program) in specified countries from the following regions: Middle East - Egypt, Jordan, Israel, West Bank/Gaza and Lebanon; East Asia/Pacific - Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam;, and Africa - Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia, Ethiopia.
