Brilliant Star became the first school in Chad to hostFull-Circle Learning trainings and translations. Visits to remote rural areas brought new skills and strategies to nomadic educators as well as villages. Children in various schools strived to master the habits of heart, to care for one another as one family, and to teach their parents conflict resolution and mindsets that would prevent corruption. Full-Circle Learning concepts continued to motivate students who extended their participation to include distance learning during the pandemic.
In 2020, Lynn Whitehead, the founder of Brilliant Star, rejuvenated the program, diving deeper into the process of adapting and translating material and guiding the staff and regional facilitators. As a result, the Education Ministry monitored the training, praising the school and the potential impact of Full-Circle Learning on the quality of teaching in Chad. The following pictures feature:
