In celebration of International Peace Day, September 21st , students will create posters and write poems to share with the school in recognition of their hopes for peace in the world.
The Peace Picnic is a community bring n' share which is open to all. It is to promote camaraderie as well as an appreciation for nature. We will be gathering in the city's botanical gardens, a lush, green setting - perfect for a morning under the trees. The approach is that this is not a "formal" event and everyone is welcome, and that sharing (of mats, food, etc) in encouraged. Posters of the event have been circulating via social media along with directions to the event area and handy tips for the day. This event will be held on Sept 17th, the weekend before International Day of Peace. A few of us will be building the dove puppet and having everyone else join us as we "fly" it in the park!
Using curriculum, research, vocabulary and thematic instruction as well as specialized learning techniques for ASD we will create an outdoor environment to support Stem Education.
TZa’Nia’s issue is trying to prevent hunger, making sure that no one goes hungry. When her older sister started a book club and support group for children of incarcerated parents, she heard families, especially children, talk about being hungry. At her school, she hears kids talk about how they like to come to school each day so they will have food because sometimes they might not have any on the weekend. When she sees people standing on the street with signs begging for money and food, she often starts to cry. Za’Nia is a foster child and she knows what it is like to be hungry, sometimes not having enough food. There have been times when she had to eat her cereal with water because the family didn’t have milk. For a short time, she lived in the homeless shelter. Now when she sees people who are hungry, she will sometimes give them her snack money so they don’t have to be hungry. The residents usually eat breakfast before the leave the facility and if they get back to the facility in the evening in a timely manner, they get a dinner meal. With this project, they would have something for themselves and their children to eat (especially the young ones that do not attend school) during the day while they are away from the shelter. This would also help them on the weekends to have something to eat as well.

In February 1997, I started the first Inter-schools girls roots & shoots soccer league in Dar es salaam City and Tanzania in general, and that marked the beginning of inter-schools girls soccer competitions. In 2005, the BQ Contractors Limited, started to support the program, which we later named THE BQ CONTRACTORS YOUTH SOCCER PROGRAM, they started supporting school and non-school going children to play organized football through equipment in balls, uniforms and travel expenses. We advocate good discipline in and outside training. Good Academic Performance in school. Exposure of kids to competitive tournaments. Inspirational football tours for players. Good relations with their parents through regular community based events. Motivating good performers in medals and trophies. The innate desire is to impart the game with the correct values of respect, dignity and purpose while appreciating players’ individual academic development. We engage their parents and guardians with intend to make participation all encompassing. Today, the BQ Soccer program for life and academic improvement is home to an increasing 120 children aged between 7 and 23. All the categories have proved the talents they poses. A number of the boys (2005, 2009 intake) are playing in the Tanzania top soccer league and earning a living through their talents, and this motivates us and uplifts our hearts to keep on making a difference in our communities to change lives of our children and give second chances of life to others too. And our strength remains to be; the presence of Committed players and availability of a bank of talents. Engagement of parents and guardians who are committed to see their children grow. Good, committed and experienced Coaches / trainers with compassion, love and care. Support from Laureate International School to accommodate the team trainings at their school football ground, changing and washrooms and support related to guidance and counseling from the school pastoral care department of the players from abusive or less priviledged environments.
We will put on a community board game day to promote family interactions which will develop early literacy and social skills. We will also collect board games to be donated to local shelters to encourage these skills and social interaction during times of need. We will be successful if we attract at least 300 people to the community board game play event and collect over 50 board games to give to the homeless shelters.
