The 'My Little Heritage Box', is the perfect way to help connect families and educate children of their roots, culture and history. This box will help open up important conversations, and help to raise children that are proud of themselves, are self-aware and empowered by their culture.
We are in a world where our children are at the risk of losing this disconnection towards their heritage, as there is little to none resources available to help visually understand their roots, especially for those from countries or islands that are not well known. As a Seychellois, who has an Angolan partner, culture has always been a hot topic in our household, as well as being so important to raise our children upon. It's the key to helping children understand who they are, and it all starts from knowing their roots.
I found myself having to educate them through word of mouth, as I physically could not find any resources that would help capture their learning at such a young age. Being from a small island myself, I knew this would be the case. The number of times I have crossed paths with several people who did not know where Seychelles became the norm', however, there was no way we would allow our children to be in the same predicament.
The 'My Little Heritage Box', helps to shine a light on those particular countries and islands that may not be in the limelight as much as others, and give children the significant cultural adventure they deserve. We have dedicated a handful of countries/islands in the dropdown to choose from, which have been selected by us based on their significance in our lives through amazing people we know... Apart from this, we offer personalisation of YOUR heritage, ensuring you get the resources you deserve to help educate your child in an engaging way of their roots.
