Child of Hope school in Uganda enjoys long-term cultural links with various schools in the UK and we have produced a series of resources suitable for the classroom and projects. We also offer plenty of communication between the schools and a visit from one of our frontline Ugandan directors (at least once a year) for assemblies and/or classroom sessions. New videos, photographs, games, songs and other resources are regularly added.
The difference between western and African schools is vast... as is the difference in lifestyle of the pupils. And that gap is about as big as it can get when you see the lives of children living in the desperately poor Namatala slum in eastern Uganda. We'd love to help UK teachers show their pupils what good development in needy countries looks like.
So, if you'd like to talk about a global link between your school and ours, let us know. We will gladly discuss any specific requirement you may have for resources. We have a UK schools liaison team, headed by former teacher Sandra Webster... call her on (01202) 888232 or e-mail her.
