Ignite vision for ADRIFT

We aim to create hope for our children, in a world that has many challenges. Our children will develop a greater understanding of the world and where those  who have been displaced from their homes come from. Children will gain secure geographical knowledge in the context of a human experience and explore the  concept of ‘Home’. Through the work that we do children will be able to form their own views of the  world based on fact and understand why prejudices may occur. Where appropriate they will be able to question things they may read, see or hear in the media. They will be able to engage in conversations with their families, helping to pivot perceptions and break down stereotypes. Our children will be empowered to turn their empathy into action and believe that  they can make a difference in the world.
