Room 18s Gift of Education

0%100%

Our school is 50 years old this year and we have had many positive experiences.  Our system is government funded but we’ve learned that other school experience difficulty with funding.  We hope to help other students in Kenya with funding for their school.  We plan to hold a 50 Year Celebration Carnival at our school.  We will raise money for our project during this event by having a used book sale.  Community members will donate used books which we will sell to community members.  Our profits will be donated to One Child’s Village.  We are excited to contribute to another learning community and to have a connection with students from elsewhere around our world!

  • Full Project Summary

    On June 4th our school will hold a Carnival.  Every class will be hosting a different event.  Each class has their own projects about which they are passionate.  Our class is excited about supporting the Right to Education for children around the world.  We decided to connect our event to our research about Education.  We will be holding a used Book Sale.  Students will be able to buy a book for two tickets and tickets cost 50 cents.  We hope to raise $300.00!  Our portion of the funds raised at the Carnival will be donated to One Child’s Village!  Together our school will support Children’s Rights and give back to our Global Community.

    One Child’s Village is an NGO that supports orphaned children in the African country of Kenya. Specifically they work to support children’s needs in the Kawangware slum in the city of Nairobi. They help these children by supporting helping them with healthcare, access to supplies for education, uniforms, teacher wages, and more.

  • Information for Educators

    This project has stemmed from our Trickster Residency: 50 Gifts for 50 Years.  Our class performed about the Right to Education.  Following that performance we began a conversation about differences in education around the world.  Kids Go Global connected us with the NGO, One Child’s Village.  Students are excited to take manageable action to support the learning of other students by hosting a fundraising event.

  • Project Outcome

    We hope to raise $300.00 and celebrate our own learning community in the process!
