We will join Two Hangry Chicks to package lentil casserole meals for local families.
Build, decorate and display a Peace Pole and peace banner. Set up times with teachers to go into their classes and speak to students about the importance of peace and how the UN promotes this. Also reminder of the 3r's!
We want to raise funds to purchase three computers at first along with educational software and begin on a small scale to scope out the effectiveness of the teaching methods and the level of interest from the women. Hopefully we can give women who haven't had many chances in life an opportunity to better their future. Often these women leave Montserrat after a number of years and move on the England. With our program they will be able to immigrate with marketable skills that will help keep them and their children from becoming vulnerable to those who would seek to exploit them.
Es wird zunächst einen Aufruf geben, dass sich möglichst jeder Schüler/jede Schülerin an der Aktion beteiligt und das Wort "Respekt" in seiner Sprache notiert und unserer Gruppe zukommen lässt. Wir sind ein wenig abgekommen von der ursprünglichen Idee: stattdessen werden Collagen von Fotos der Schüler erstellt. Diese Fotos sind freiwillig und werden dann das Wort "Respekt" in unterschiedlichen Sprachen füllen. to be continued...
Here in Argentina, there is a children's hospital that collects bottle for earning money.
I read Jane Goodall's book "Dr. White" by Julie Litty to the kids so that they could relate to how this little dog helped children in the hospital feel better. They decorated bags for Halloween and personalized them with messages to the kids. We filled the bags with miniature pumpkins, stickers to decorate those pumpkins, fall leaves from North Carolina (we don't have fall leaves in Florida :-), handmade felt mask that the kids decorated by sewing sequins on, activity books and stickers.
With my project I plan to offer an outreach and education program to kindergarten through 12th grade students in the local area informing them of issues that impact their community and environment as well as ways they can help by becoming involved. Thus enabling a generation to move itself out of poverty by working toward its own community improvement. The ultimate goal is to resolve major issues plaguing the area such as excessive pollution and general litter along with a higher than state average poverty and drop out rates.
Our project will establish an area with appropriate predator proof enclosures for different species, available for the community, especially farmers, to come and see how they can keep their livestock safe. We will research the best techniques for predator proofing, costs to build and maintain the structures, organizations to partner with, and funding sources. Then we will build the structures, and open up the area so people can visit and learn!
We are dressing in costumes and spending an hour trick or treating for UNICEF in a busy square.
We are having the kids color socks and compose sock similes. Members of the school community have been asked to donate new socks.
