We want to expand our engagement with schools across the world, involving more students and teachers with EduSpots as an active global citizens project. We can help schools partner with a Ghanaian community and join our global network of educational ‘catalysts’.
Using our experience and contacts in Ghana, we can link schools with a community in Ghana and help to build a project with this community in an area of interest. We can also help schools set up trips and visit Ghana to meet community members running the projects.
We have recently launched two partnership projects with Eton College, a Xtalks project & a promotion of African Literature project.
Our Xtalks project, is an education project focused on giving students from Ghanaian communities an opportunity to share their perspective on issues of concern to them that the world needs to hear. Students from Ghana and the UK combine to create a video telling their stories.
Both students in the UK and Ghana are able to increase their understanding of the global context through interactions along the production journey, whilst giving a voice to Ghanaian students in a global context, enabling them to share their perspective on issues that are of concern to them.
The African Literature project, aims to generate greater interest and investment in books (fiction and non-fiction – and other forms of art) by African authors, led by our team in Ghana. Students reflect on the importance of African authors and characters being represented in fiction, create book of the month posters, develop book reviews, as well as many other exciting ways to promote African authors.
We hold annual conferences in both the UK and Ghana, helping students to gain access to new ideas and diverse debates, and also collaborate on ideas. We bring in experts in the field, as well as having our student ambassadors present their work that their school has been doing.
