I'm the Director of a non profit organization whose mission is to inspire curiosity and foster appreciation in diverse world cultures--www.worldchildrensmuseum.org
We sponsor an International Youth Art exchange (25th year) and have a rich collection of artifacts from 79 countries.  This collection is used to create interactive displays in our children's museum in Glens Falls, NY and also in educational outreach programs created in part with grants; curriculum meets NYS core standards.
I'm seeking partners and funding opportunities for inserting hands on geography lessons in our space and video on world adventure and travel--we currently feature a marketplace in Nigeria, a home in Japan and a festival in China.  Ideas?  Thank you.
