JEM that began in 1991 in collaboration with Russian and Buckingham Friends School teachers, now consists of permanent partner schools in Russia, India, China, Australia, Ecuador, Kenya, and Hawaii. JEM partner schools engage in yearly home-stay exchanges. The theme this year was “water” and the local, national and global issues that affect this resource. The KLE students acted as ambassadors for India and after returning home they would continue to promote the stewardship that was nurtured there and work on environmental projects. Over the past 22 years, 45 travel exchanges have taken place with participation from schools in seven different countries and six continents. Over 1,870 children and adults have been directly impacted through traveling or by hosting, and countless others through their association with the schools and families.
