Intercultural Project Sharing
That is why we are creating Project Indus: an online platform that will support a large
and active student community, powered by the authentic voices and stories of students.
On our platform, we encourage kids to anonymously share their perspective on their own lives,
their local community and the world at large.
This platform will be a place where children can come together to exchange ideas in a safe and fun way.
Therefore, we are building Project Indus on the following values:
Expose children to differing perspectives today, so they can become the global leaders of tomorrow
Share your stories in any way you want. Write a poem, photograph your family or create a short movie!
Become part of an active community of learners who are engaged together to better understand and discover the world around us
Create a profile, pick an avatar and gain levels through sharing your experiences and engaging with the community
Our Solution: Project Indus
An interactive platform for educators to teach global citizenship through an ESL or Social Sciences curriculum
Project Indus is an online platform fostering an active, self-sustaining community of students creating and safely sharing content based on their stories and experiences. Our community is global, so Project Indus addresses the limited resources out there that prepare students for a complex world of cultural and socio-political differences. Because content is shared by peers, students can easily identify with the content they are studying. Furthermore, our homepage will constantly update to show the most popular content created by our community, so our platform will showcase up-to-date stories at all times. Project Indus will passively motivate children through both a shared sense of community and a gamified system in which students are rewarded for participation. The student content can be used by teachers to thread stories and themes together. Our team will generate lesson ideas and creative lesson material for teachers to use so they can reduce time, effort and resources spent on searching for great lesson plans.
