Nooraine Fazal, Founding CEO & Managing Trustee, Inventure Academy: “In a world which is increasingly voting for autocratic leaders, “strong men”, and getting polarised, it is important for children to learn how true democracy works and the benefit of global institutions such as the
United Nations. It is critical for our children to learn the power of collaborating effectively with other leaders & nations to find solutions for the many problems that we face as humanity. In addition, China is now well on its way to establishing itself as a super power, perhaps even
displacing the US hegemony. It is therefore good for our students to get exposure to China & establish friendships with Chinese students.”
