Teachers Network to Prepare for Pandemic
Emergency Empathy Fund
Full-Circle Learning has set up an Emergency Fund for vulnerable communities where children, especially orphans, depend on schools for food. Some now face the threat of food insecurity along with health risks, due to schools closures. We are monitoring the pandemic, the closures and the FCL regions of greatest need. Your contributions to this fund will determine whether we can meet the many request at our doorstep. Please select the DONATE button and earmark your contribution by writing in Emergency Empathy Fund.
Training Caring Caregivers
One of every three children in Africa go to bed hungry, interfering with learning and reciliency to life-threatening disease. School closures due to Covid-19 have made those statistics radically higher. By April 14, 2020, FCL school leaders such as Lorpu(right), in the Skinkor, Paynesville and Lower Johnsonville districts of Liberia, had distributed humanitarian food aid to 216 teachers. These teams helped feed the most vulnerable, including orphans who rely on schools for their one meal a day. A recipient remarked, "It was like you had given us water two drink when we are so thirsty and had nowhere too turn." Your donation today can feed even more.
K-12 teachers around the world strive to bring the learning full-circle for their students - to infuse a sense of purpose into offsite education during a pandemic, when we truly need to raise a new generation of change agents. The world's conditions may change the tools we use and the creative strategies we must employ, but if anything, these seeming limitations on learning make our mission and vision more profound than ever. Ask about online chats for teachers.
Sharing lesson plans and online resources, FCL mentor teachers link the habits-of-heart to relevant academics during school closures. They inspire relevant service for homes and communities. Wisdom exchanges across borders play a special role in keeping the sense of connection strong.
If you are a Full-Circle Learning teacher, check the Resource section for sample learning units. Even with disrupted classrooms, you need not disrupt the valuable learning you provide your students.
An online Care Skills program, designed by Dr. Rahmani, has launched with a pilot class of 25. The course features Covid-19 instruction as well as other essential using practices. Course Co-Instructor Steven D. William (pictured here) has served as head of nurse at Cooper Hospital, Fothon Community Clinic, and Bread of Life Health Clinic since 1990.
Habit-of-heart synchronize with the care skills course, offered to a class of secondary students, parents and those with caregiving careers in mind. Co-instructor Saybah P. Jallah (above) has worked as a Mother and Child Care Nurse with Medical Team International and with African Humanitarian Action since 2013. Contact the FCL Africa headquarters to enroll in a class.
The many children supported by this large family may have starved without FCL's Emergency Empathy Fund. In various locked down countries, the threat of food insecurity outweigh fear of the pandemic. We have extended the hunger project to include ten more nations with current school closures: Cameroon, Ghana, Nigeria, Gabon, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, Chad, The Gambia, and Lesotho. FCL Leaders reminded teachers of the chance to save lives with just a bag of rice, a bottle of oil and an effort to draw others into the cause. We now pass that reminder on to the friends of Full-Circle Learning. Thank you for your contributions.
Four schools in Liberia formed a coronavirus choir to write and sing a love song for China. After their own batter with Ebola, they felt deep empathy about ending the infection for distant brothers and sisters.
