National Schools Programme
Edukid’s National School Programme (NSP) caters for reception age right through to university.
Each year we fly pupils and teachers out to our projects abroad and they interview the children and ask the questions they see as relevant.
The films give a voice to children living in poverty/conflict and enable them to talk about the issues as they see them.
We then create lesson plans and teaching resources to support these films.
Schools/classes/pupils can enable children living in poverty to access education for the first time through our sponsorship programme. In conflict areas such as Palestine we can link your school/teacher/class/School Council directly with your vetted counter parts. Meaning you are able to Skype and work on joint projects, making your schools learning experience far more interactive and relational.
Our aim is to enable UK pupils to grow year on year in their understanding of the issues, and to feel empowered as global citizens to be part of the solution. From secondary school upwards we can take school trips out to meet their sponsored children, so they can see first-hand the difference they are making.
Teacher exchanges are also possible in three countries
Feel free to download a copy of our National Schools Programme Brochure.
Choose the country you would like to follow, then register your school.
You can then download the films, and resources you need.
All our resources are free. We simply ask that you provide outlets for your students to react by making a positive difference, this way they can channel their response in productive ways and feel empowered and not disabled. In 99% of situations pupils choose to do some kind of fundraising. This enables us to reach out to more children involved in our projects and we are then able to offer more learning opportunities to your school.
Scroll down and see how other schools have become involved with Edukid, and write and tell us what you are doing. Through sharing your ideas we hope to inspire others like you:
Kara Shepherd from Bideford College heard about Edukid in her sixth form assembly. She visited Uganda. On her return she told her sixth form about her trip, who in turn decided to sponsor 4 children. This inspired the rest of the year groups to sponsor a further 5 children. Kara has now gone back to volunteer in Uganda and is currently studying International Development at university. Sixth formers continue to visit year in year.
Schools in North Devon did a joint project and decorated Chinese Floating Lanterns with messages and prayers for their sponsored children.
Students from Great Torrington School fund raised for 18 months so they could visit our Cambodia project. Individuals from this group have now left school, but personally sponsor children. Some are now social workers or teach and one is now a trustee
The following events are happening in 2015. Why not come and join in or create your own one!
We regularly visit our projects. We can cater for individuals, groups and school trips. Get in touch for further details. In the mean time here are a couple of flyers to wet your appetite
