As parents, when given the opportunity to engage our children in world issues, we must take it. Our children hear about world issues, they see images in the news and they are paying attention. Little Voices are Loud is an organization dedicated to engaging and empowering children’s voices on global issues such as: refugees, clean water and education. Our founder, Deena Neimat, experienced war abroad as a child and is now a mother in Louisville, and realized quickly that the worldview of U.S. children can be very sheltered. This is why we have created resources for parents wanting to involve their kids with world issues.
