MoMo Projects are intercultural educational projects between pupils from schools with different socio-economic backgrounds to improve the living- and learning circumstances of the pupils.
In Kenya, just like in the Netherlands, the educational system and content is constantly changing. In our times there is a need for global citizenship education in connection with the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN. Being in contact with other cultures brings new perspectives for our pupils.
