In depth study on the theme: "Balance Man-Animal-Environment" through the use of the Technology Entertainment Design (TED), instrument apt for spreading "valuable ideas".
The project involves the students in the research of TEDs on the subject of eco-sustainability and in the critical analysis of their theses in order to carry out an in-depth study on the issues related to the protection of the environment. As a final result, they will make a short film that will highlight the focal points of substance and ideas acquired. They will convey their derived considerations and proposals to give evidence to the one element that is becoming more and more essential, which is that each individual is to take active part to protect the environment and therefore the life of animals and humans. The students will make use of those sentences, images, interviews likely to have the strongest possible impact.
The aim is to increase and enhance the income generating activities of the project ‘Sanganigwa Children's Home’ supported by JGI Italia.

A video tutorial will be sent to the cooperative to establish a solid collaboration aimed at creating new products for sale!
This activity is focused on the income generating efforts to be introduced in the project ‘Sanganigwa Children's Home’ supported by JGI-Italia.

The goal of the project "The Reappearance of the Hermit Ibis" was to spread among students the knowledge about the Hermit Ibis and to inform people of the ongoing efforts to reintroduce this endangered species, with the support of also the European Union. We took the opportunity to acquaint people also with illegal hunting which is the greatest threat to this bird. The end result of the whole project was the production by the students of a CD on this subject.
The project aims at promoting among students some assessment capacity on passive communication associated to commercials and to start a critical examination of advertisments.

All of us will contribute the blacktop every Friday, putting in our time and money, and devote ourselves to getting this project done. We are planning on using PVC pipes to create the soccer goals. We are also going to repaint the blacktop lines, and possibly fix our basketball hoops.
