Meaningful Participation


In Arigatou International, we are constantly creating spaces and opportunities for children to express their views about issues that concern them, provide their insights into the work we do, and interact with each other in intercultural and interfaith dialogues.

On this page, you will find information about some of the opportunities for engagement that we have created for children in recent times. 

One outstanding example is the virtual exhibition we launched in 2020 which showcased the experiences of over 150 children during the COVID-19 pandemic.
