Collaboration

Many young children with creative skills are determined to put the past behind them and actively work towards a brighter future. We hope to bring the media to children in vulnerable communities in Africa and other parts of the world. By collaborating with schools not only in Africa, but around the world, we envision a global learning community between children in developed countries and children in developing countries through the magic of media and the Internet. Sometimes problems across the globe seem so far away that students may feel sad about it, but don’t feel a real connection. It is beneficial for children in all countries to understand how life can be for children in other parts of the world. By increasing their knowledge, we prepare them to be global citizens.

Participants are encouraged to share their stories, ideas, and experiences with their peers around the world.

The children can share their activities, music, photos, art work, and short film documentaries as a means of sharing what is going on in their part of the world.

By helping students make global connections, we hope to expand their view of the world and their empathy for their fellow humans.

Some of our global partners have already enabled us to share our part of the world with you. A school in Slovenia sent the funds to purchase a computer. Another school in the United States was able to send us digital and video cameras. Another school in the United Staes donated computers and funded internet service to the school. A teacher in the United Staes provided training to our teachers for internet resources and using e-mail. Our students are now able to show other students first-hand what it is like to live in a third world country, and we are able to see what it is like in other parts of the world. We are all discovering the richest content of all–student generated learning.
