School Linking Program
School linking provides a unique opportunity to transform the lives of children in both the USA and Africa. Your students will learn about important international issues, and provide life-changing support to a partner school in rural Africa.
What can your students learn?
Establishing an international school link gives your students important awareness of global issues:
- Our letter exchange program improves students’ knowledge and understanding of other cultures, the wider world and their own role as global citizens
- Students can discuss the issues that affect their lives, build relationships, and a respect for diversity
- They can also benefit from unique teaching resources that add a new dimension to lessons
- Your students will gain a better understanding of the work of charities and non-profits, helping them prepare creative fundraising activities
