As the spotlight on post-quake Haiti dwindles, Architecture for Humanity, the Bezos Family Foundation, and Global Nomads Group recognize there is still much work to be done to rebuild Haiti. Architecture for Humanity remains committed to Haiti’s reconstruction efforts through Students Rebuild, with a $500,000 challenge grant to rebuild safer, stronger, and permanent schools in Haiti!
We warmly invite you to join us in this significant endeavor during this upcoming school year- one that will allow your students to interact with their Haitian peers, empower them to become young global philanthropists, and follow the progress of their fundraising efforts!
In the 2010-2011 school year, we will roll out a comprehensive Students Rebuild Haiti program that will include:
➢ a national standards-based, four-module curriculum covering Haiti’s socio-cultural and geopolitical background, school reconstruction and the education system, international relations, and student philanthropy
➢ live videoconference series from Haiti with Global Nomads Group throughout the school year (including an educator introduction session and a student wrap-up session)
➢ webcasts that will feature Architecture for Humanity staff and other NGO members working on the ground for a live progress report
➢ interactive social media to keep you up-to-date on the latest school reconstruction efforts. Don’t forget to check out the blog during the summer to receive the latest updates from the field!
➢ In addition, there will be various “calls to action,” collaborative projects, and activities that your team can engage in - which will be announced throughout the school year
