Schools and Universities
A generation of Active Global Citizens
We live in a global world and it is important that education reflects this. The Buturi School Twinning programme is uniquely placed to deliver an understanding of how global challenges are faced in another country and its context. Classrooms are becoming more culturally diverse as England is hosting increasing numbers of refugees. An understanding of the reasons why young people are fleeing their own countries will allow the students to think about how we can come together to address the root problems of the countries they originate from eg. poverty, education, food insecurity, climate change and unemployment. Unemployment is an issue for both Africa and the UK. By facilitating early entrepreneurship and innovation, we will improve the employability of young people and develop their life skills.
The initial involvement would be a one-day workshop, introducing the Buturi project and its programmes. Participants would be challenged to engage in problem-solving and decision making to take forward a programme relevant to them, as a project of their own. They will be supported and mentored by the charity as and when required depending on the age of students and the capacity of the schools and colleges. The students have great fun while exchanging learning experiences from children living in a very different culture. Schools that are currently partners are listed below.
