Supported by Teaching English Games
(Donations & Sponsorships since January 2011)
I am grateful to be able to sponsor Amrita Koirala through school via VIN: Volunteers Initiative Nepal. Amrita is a good student (or so her teachers assure me!) and she wants to become a social worker, at least at the moment, because she enjoys helping people. I hope she will have a happy, joyful life and feel loved. VIN are a small organisation which takes great care with donations. Therefore I can recommend them if you would also like to sponsor a child, or partially sponsor one.
Mkombozi Center, Tanzania.
Amani Masuki reports back to me after using resources donated by Teaching English Games:
"For my experiece, street children cannot sit down for 40 minutes and concentrate on the text books or on the blackboard or listening to the teacher, because their life on the street mostly is to roam here and there almost whole day.
But after trying your games we found that the children like them very much as they keep them fun and enjoying the whole 40 minutes and demanding to continue beyond the time set.
The children were enthusiastic and motivated to participate fully. After the session I asked them how they felt about the games. They said, "Really great."
Teachers form other classes also shared with me what had happen in their classes. They appreciate your games and said that you deserve congratulations."
An enourmous thankyou from the team here at IdukayPeru, and from all the kids for your gift. I think that your games will not only be useful for teaching English, but for many other subjects in Spanish too with a bit of adapting! Ellen Casey.

Children on the project
Teachers and volunteers are working in Mongolia to improve education for poor children with better facilities and smaller classes.
We have made donations to Avaaz who organise petitions for good causes online. Millions sign them around the world so that we, the people, can create the change we want for a better world that our leaders are not capable of.
