Happy Teachers’ Day: Where Would We Be Without You?

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
Happy Teacher Appreciation Day to ALL who set out to open the world to children through education, in fact through the very best education their selfless dedication can produce.
Thank you & Happy Teacher Appreciation Day to ALL The Giving Circle teachers everywhere – including those on board now and all those who will join us. You serve our children with compassion, guidance, time, hard work, and quality instruction. With this support, our children will break the chains of ignorance and oppression.
Mahatma Gandhi said “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” We are doing exactly that. And, as we do, ripples from our efforts are starting to radiate.
Because of so many of YOU, we have two schools in Africa and are about to construct another school in Afghanistan with a friend. In addition, we are hard at work developing our Koi Koi Teachers University. The university’s systems can – check that – WILL change the face of education in the poorest schools in Uganda first. The ripple effects of this effort will then spread throughout the world. Eventually, thousands of small satellite schools will employ a Collaborative Hybrid Curriculum that will be developed with its basis in listening to the community and showing RESPECT for the community’s existing values. We must accomplish this for EVERY child, regardless of the child’s being “healthy” or disabled, let alone brilliant or “slow.” We must never, ever, ever give up on a child. It’s true that not all learn at the same pace or in the same way. But ALL can learn and ALL have the potential to change the world. The only factor needed is someone to educate them and believe in them. And for that we have teachers.
