Project Children is an American-Northern Ireland partnership dedicated to showing Protestant and Catholic kids that they have nothing to fear from each other and much to gain. The program started in 1975 with six children from Belfast, three from one community and three from the other. The kids spent that summer in America, getting to know each other in a small New York town. Now Project Children places approximately 100 children from Northern Ireland with host families across America each summer for a four-week period. In 2012, Central New York families hosted more than 31 children, more than anywhere else in the Country!
