  • Using the map can you name any countries where the Good Foundations International have worked? Can you point to where you live?

Michael Marriott – Kiosko

  • Kiosko is full of things that have been ‘re-purposed’, which means used for something different from its original use. What do you think is the cleverest re-purposing here?
