Wisdom Means More than Words

Full-Circle Learners and teachers apply their habits of heart and mind to serve their human family, Their global wisdom exchanges increased in immediacy and complexity in 2021, as schools more ably collaborated across national borders to apply salve to community challenges in addition to the pandemic.

For example, on a health disparities wisdom exchange, the habit-of-heart awareness prompted Nigerian students to help surrounding communities prevent Lassa fever and Zambian students to reduce typhoid. Schools advanced tribal unification through bold campaigns for appreciation of diversity in the Gambia and in Zambia. Wisdom exchanges also included energy projects and sustainable development projects, while Girls United participants painted a portrait for Nobel Peace prize winner Leymah Gbowee and engaged her in their peace advocacy aims. 

During the same quarter, Gambian learners taught mothers of malnourished children about nutrition, while individual scholarship students in Liberia took on initiatives to teach drug awareness, farming, handwashing and even crabbing, to enhance food security.

Teacher training workshops added to the ranks in Chad, the Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, and Zambia in the first quarter of 2021. With the help of capacity building programs for teachers, project grants for schools, and scholarships for students, learners lifted their goal from mere resilience to brilliance, becoming beacons of altruism in their communities.
