Our Shared Humanity
Our project’s namesake reminds us of our responsibility as global citizens.
AFP takes these words to heart as we immerse ourselves in the research, appreciation and exposure to the world outside the confines of our American homes. As with all AFP initiatives, we are committed to moving theory to action. The Human Genome Project has proven we are all basically comprised of the same biological material. The Anne Frank Project seeks to activate this theory by collaborating with communities from around the world to celebrate our shared humanity. Using the power of Story-Based Learning, AFP travels to post-genocide countries to break assumptions and create new vocabulary for conflict resolution, community building and diplomacy. We believe this process can indeed “improve the world.”
