The Commonwealth is a family of 53 countries from all over the world. We come from the Pacific, Africa, Asia, Europe, the Caribbean and Americas.

We are all very different – but we work together.

we-are-different

We share our skills and knowledge to help each other

– and we share the same goals.

There are LOTS of us in our family.

And more than half of us are young people just like you.
