PHOENIX -- Do your kids ever wonder how children in other countries live? Now they have a chance to find out at the Children's Museum of Phoenix.

A new exhibit at the museum uses photography as a way to expose children to how kids in other parts of the world live. It gives people a raw glimpse into the daily lives and customs of other cultures.

The exhibit was made possible by the organization Through Each Others Eyes (TEOE). It's a Phoenix-based non-profit organization that uses the power of photography to raise global awareness and build bridges between cultures.

"We help people understand and appreciate cultures that are different than their own," says Errol Zimmerman of TEOE. "We have traveled many countries around the world to take pictures. And naturally we have many pictures of children."

TEOE donated the exhibit of 20 images, which will be on permanent display on the second and third floors. The photos were taken by TEOE's professional volunteer photographers from their photo exchanges around the country. All of the photos give a glimpse into how children live throughout the world, in such places as Venezuela, Mexico, Japan, Cuba, the Philippines, the U.S., and Africa.
