Pittsburgh-Based Wonderaddo Launches Fun, Engaging Global Education Resource for Children and Families

Pittsburgher Mandy Fields Yokim has founded Wonderaddo, LLC, a global education resource focused on promoting the global awareness of children and families in Pittsburgh.

Wonderaddo launched its new website on Thursday, August 15th, 2013 with the goal of providing a valuable community resource that will inspire Pittsburgh residents and visitors to explore the world through global events, activities and connections in our beautiful city – no passport or suitcases required.

The public is invited to Wonderaddo's free Explore the World Launch Event at the Pittsburgh Public Market in the Strip District on Aug. 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

"Wonderaddo is a great resource for parents with young children to experience the world and celebrate diverse cultures in Pittsburgh." - Amiena Mahsoob, Director of Education Programs, World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh
As Pittsburgh continues to be recognized on a national and global scale for its many amenities, Wonderaddo strives to inspire even our youngest residents and visitors to appreciate and benefit from all that the city has to offer, says Yokim, a writer and the mother of young children.

"When Mandy visited the GlobalPittsburgh office to talk to us about Wonderaddo, we agreed that she would be filling a niche by helping families with young children learn about global activities in the region and further explore other cultures via fun educational tools.  We believe that Wonderaddo may lead families to consider becoming host families for international visitors for our organization and to inspire kids to travel and consider global careers when they are older." - Gail Shrott, Director, International Leaders Program, GlobalPittsburgh
