Introducing KidsView 2013
Bahay Tuluyan believes in the power of all children to create change. KidsView Social Justice conferences are a chance to hear from young people who have experienced extreme poverty and who are now community leaders, empowering others to change their situation. It is a terrific opportunity to challenge your students perception of wealth and opportunity and realize their potential to create a socially just world.
