We are students from secondary school
"V Liceum Ogólnokształcące im. Roberta Schumana" in
Sosnowiec - Poland.
We have decided to realize international project concerned with
educational help and support to African school from Tanzania
– "Leguruki Secondary School". This project is a consequence
of our interest in Millenium Development Goals.
Through realization of our project we would like to support
the recognition of human rights education and intercultural
dialogue in formal and non-formal education.We hope that this
website will contribute to better popularization of the kinds
of projects and maybe will help our friends from Tanzanian school!
Through our actions we would like to develop the attitude of openness
and tolerance for others. This project was designed to encourage students
to help Africa. It is necessary to assist these in their attempt to
get access to education and to equal chances.
This project covers different fields: civilization (culture/foreign
language), everyday life of the country and its inhabitants,
aspects concerned with Millenium Development Goals and also
- encouraging to discover foreign cultures
- developing communication competence
- integration through language and culture
- using and developing modern information and communication technologies
- cultural understanding
- sharing the diversity of European and African cultures and communities
- helping to overcome existing prejudices
- mobilizing resources from developed Countries all over Europe and
else where to help African schools better than they are today by improving
learning and teaching environment and supporting poor and orphan educational
- introducing students to social, educational and political problems
of African countries, including intercultural phenomena
- sensitizing students to what is common and present the
differences in the "uniting global world"
We organized many different activities concerned with "Millenium
Development Goals Campaign" and our school joined to European
Information presented in the media often shows negative points
of African countries which make people not willing to get to
know the countries of the South. There are a few opportunities
to get first - hand information or meet people from the countries
of the South who would like to exchange their experience.
The project enables the South and the North to meet virtually.
It also gives us more information about the real situation in
African countries and makes meeting their inhabitants possible.
It aims to keep peace in the world. Young people have an opportunity
to learn how to establish contacts with the countries of the
South and North. The project helps the participants create their
own publications and studies. The African partners are given
opportunities to present their initiatives and ideas.
Actions undertaken within the project:
- establishing and keeping mails contacts with Tanzanian teachers
- familiarizing the participants of the project with Tanzanian geography,
nature, politics and economyeEncouraging students to correspond with
- preparing multimedial school presentations
- organization global action which will be concerned with "Millennium
Development Goals Campaign"
To organize "Our educational support for African school",
at the beginning of realization of our project we organized
financial support to send parcels with various educational materials
like books, stationery ect.
By creating this site, we hoped that people will gain knowledge about
global problems in our modern world. We chose to enter our site in the
ThinkQuest competition, since their library is used by people at all
ages around the world.
We hope that this action will enable students to learn more
about global issues such as children’s rights, climate change
and fair trade, undertake a "global challenge", for
example to support fair trade or to use energy and water more
efficiently, become part of the solution to some of the world’s
biggest challenges, create innovative and effective ways of
linking their learning to responsible action, investigate what
you can do to help and act to create a better world for people
on the planet.
