Full-Circle Learning teachers in Ghana first received Full-CircleLearning training in 2017. By 2020, the students had become leaders in humanitarian service, showing their strengths especially during the 2020 pandemic. Inspired by their drive to help the most vulnerable, one teacher gave the shirt off his back to provide material for the students to wash in order to offer masks to the neediest in the community. Other outcomes centered on food security in relation to specific habits-of-heart.
Through a Full-Circle Learning grant, students collaborated with experienced farmers to make a garden, so as to help provide food for the community. On Farmers’ Day, the community awarded the youth six cutlasses and some seedlings to continue their good work. Teachers from three more schools received training shortly afterward.
One head teacher Joseph Adzaglo, said ‘’I think this is how we should train our children.” Ghana’s Regional Facilitator, Henry Quarshie, added:
“The communities have recognized how the students are trying their best to exert change and to make the human family great in their localities...everyone in the communities helps to make sure[students’] activities succeed...Each and every one of us has a role to play.”
