The current project is dedicated to creating a virtual model of a global village by collecting relevant data and various facts about different countries around the world. We understand that we cannot create a global village in full sense with absolutely all countries included. Instead we are trying to investigate the world by exploring different corners of the globe to the extent that our possibilities allow.  For this purpose we use free web-based applications that we have converted into learning tools using our imagination and we want to thank all the providers listed below for such an opportunity. We have divided Our quest for knowledge and better understanding of other cultures into two parts:

  • First part : collecting and sharing knowledge about chosen countries 
  • Second part: finding  and establishing collaboration with schools from these countries

Who are we?


We are a group of 19 students (class 8F) from Mansikkala School, Imatra, Finland and a teacher Alona Senishch-Chmilewsky


How we chose the countries


After careful consideration and discussion we decided to choose the countries we know nothing or very little about and we hope it will help us to break our stereotypes about unfamiliar cultures and distance that separates us. For the list of countries click here




  • Learn, learn and learn about the world
  • Broaden our horizonts by understanding different points of view 
  • Get rid of prejudice towards certain cultures if there is any
  • Learn that human heart comes first, not nationality
  • Establish contacts with children around the world
