Passport Day 2014 was an absolute blast this year! Over 65 "world travelers" flew on Passport Day, a huge increase from 2013! The "frequent flyers" were children that "flew" to Kenya, Uganda, Nicaragua, India, and Mexico, the countries that HALO works in, without ever leaving their hometown!
The youth started in the USA before climbing aboard HALO airlines; then, take-off! Tasty ethnic foods were sampled, including Kenyan doughnuts and Mexican enchiladas. Yummy! Each youth also got to make a craft representative of the country they were in, like Nicaraguan maracas, Ugandan necklaces, and got Indian Henna tattoos.
The event was a total success and fun for everyone involved! The event couldn't have been so fun without HALO's UMKC Advocate Group, INDUS of UMKC, the African Student Cultural Organization, the Association of Latino American Students, and the African-American Culture House of UMKC to help make our "travelers" have the world adventure they'll never forget!
