This beautifully illustrated storybook contains five stories from partner countries that Irish Aid works in. As well as case studies this storybook includes maps, fact files, general country information and a ‘what we do’ feature about Irish Aid’s work.

As stated in the opening of the book by Shane from Ireland:

“In “One World, Our World” children from Ethiopia, Tanzania, Lesotho and Mozambique, which are all in Africa, and Vietnam, which is in Asia, tell us about the amazing wildlife, landscapes and food in their countries, and they tell us the stories of their lives, the things that make them happy and sad and their hopes and dreams for the future. There are fifty four countries in Africa, but I didn’t know how different each of them is, or what an interesting place to live Vietnam would be, until I read this book.

Do you know how much snow they get in Lesotho, or which languages children in Mozambique speak, or if Christianity reached Ireland or Ethiopia first? If you read “One World, Our World” you’ll find out and maybe like me you’ll get so interested in our partner countries that you’ll want to visit them one day!”
