From Global Nomads Group:
As the spotlight on post-quake Haiti dwindles, Architecture for Humanity, the Bezos Family Foundation and Global Nomads Group recognize there is still much work to be done to rebuild Haiti. Students Rebuild remains committed to Haiti’s reconstruction efforts with a $500,000 challenge grant to rebuild stronger, safer, permanent schools in Haiti!
We warmly invite you to join us in this significant endeavor during the upcoming school year – one that will allow your students to interact with their Haitian peers, empower them to become young, global philanthropists and follow the progress of their fundraising efforts. So far, we have raised $106,223 in less than 6 months!
In the 2010-2011 school year, we will roll out a comprehensive Students Rebuild Haiti program that will include:
• national standards-based, four-module curriculum covering Haiti’s socio-cultural and geopolitical background, school reconstruction and the education system, international relations and student philanthropy
• live videoconference series from Haiti with Global Nomads Group throughout the school year (including an educator introduction session and a student wrap-up session)
• webcasts that will feature Architecture for Humanity staff and other NGO members working on the ground for a live progress report
• calls to action, collaborative projects and activities that your team can engage in throughout the school year.
