School to School Partnership

School Building Project In Africa For $15,000

School-to-School Partnership is a program which will create direct, one-to-one relationships between schools in America and schools in the developing world, beginning in Uganda, East Africa. These program, will strongly support the expansion of school-to-school access through global networks to share knowledge and resources for learning within a cross-cultural setting.

The purpose of this Program is to introduce schools to one another via the Internet and nurture curiosity and appreciation between students and teachers living in very different cultures. Students and teachers participating in the program will gain cross-cultural awareness about the personal lives and learning conditions of their counterparts, while enhancing their academic curriculum.

The Program Mission:

“Linking schools globally for cross-cultural learning through project collaboration between students and teachers to prepare students for the international marketplace.”

This program will provide guidelines and coaching to American and African teachers and students to facilitate their discovery of the many ways to engage and exchange learning resources available at each other’s schools. This exchange will enrich environmental science curriculum they share, while developing closer relationships with each other as valuable partners in international awareness and learning.
