"Raising awareness for current events in other countries"

P E A C H is essentially a news website. It is a website where anyone could easily educate themselves from anywhere in the world.
Life is hectic. More often than not, we teenagers struggle to stay on top of our lives, and because of this, we often neglect what is happening in the world around us. The most young adults might do is retweet and create new hashtags about the tragedies that happen. Social media just shows us the surface of the problem, and we never really look into what is happening. All this creates many misconceptions about what is really happening in the world. We created this platform so that teens and young adults can see what really happens by sharing articles and informing them about new major events that happen everyday.
What we wanted to do is to create a community where teenagers and young adults can interact with the world. To solve this issue, we wanted to create interactive website that could easily educate anyone anywhere in the world. This mainly started as a way to raise awareness in other countries but it is also a way for others to research about the world.
Originally we wanted the user to be able to rotate the globe on our website and click on any country of their choice and afterwards have details about the country pop up such as demographics, culture, and news. We were not able to do that so instead we compromised. Although the look wasn't the same, our purpose and content we wanted is still there. You can click on the flags in the country section for the pop ups instead!
