We will endeavour to give our project maximum visibility, thereby delivering tangible value to the kind supporters who will help make our trip possible.
Leanne is a South African radio personality, an experienced corporate communications professional, a keen blogger, and a social media specialist while Guillaume spent years producing image-building reports for international media for a range of countries across the globe (including Brazil for the French daily Le Monde).
At a time when the BRICS countries are aiming to strengthen their ties, boosting tourism, cultural and educational exchanges among them has become a key objective. We trust that our trip will provide a perfect platform to shed light on how exciting traveling through these countries as a family is, while our BRICS schools project will also create awareness of each other's educational experiences and, hopefully, be the beginning of long-lasting inter-BRICS school exchanges.
Individuals or companies keen to associate themselves with our exciting project and help us along are welcome to contact us.
We thank our partners for their contributions
