Free Spirit Promotions is a company based on the belief that education is the most formidable weapon that can be waged against fear, ignorance and prejudice.

Education leads to travel, and travel leads to understanding, tolerance, and appreciation of cultures and customs different to our own, and ultimately to world peace.
