The educational projects are free. The projects do motivate learning, by helping teachers to relate to local curriculum guidelines and to student's personal interests and goals.
Kidlink is open for all children and youth in any country up to the age of 15, and for students that are attending secondary school. Most users are between 10 - 15 years of age. Since the start in 1990, children from 176 countries participated in Kidlink projects.
