‘Your community, our world’
At the heart of this project and Our Sansar’s work in general, is the idea that our world is comprised of a variety of diverse communities. Perceiving ourselves as members of our own community, however big or small, and concurrently as members of the global community, inspires us to consider the conditions and circumstances of people around us and help empower those people living in less fortunate communities, so that they too have the opportunity to achieve their dreams, ambitions and goals.
‘…..William Sir remained with us for some 10 months and in this short time we have learnt so many things….every week he used to come with different project works, and some of the projects which we did prepare are hanging in our classroom…He was encouraging, helpful and a strict teacher, and he made us cry a lot during the farewell’
- Sarita Sunar, student from Shree Amar school, Hetauda
Goals of the programme
- Link schools in Hetauda, Birgunj and Chitwan with UK schools and facilitate an international information, resource and cultural exchange that benefit both Nepalese and British children.
- Inspire the younger generations in the UK to identify themselves as members of their own as well as the global community, widen their horizons and deepen their understanding of the world around us.
- Build a fairer, more sustainable world with socially responsible citizens who value and respect diversity and the ability to challenge injustices and inequalities.
- As part of our campaign ‘Your community, our world’ we are partnering UK schools with those in Nepal to allow them to share thoughts, experiences and ideas about their communities. If you are a student, a teacher or just interested in the link project we would like to hear from you and get your school to join our campaign.
At Our Sansar, we can help you create fun, interactive activities that explore your student’s ideas about their communities involving:
- Short stories
- Blogs and diaries
- Pictures, photos and video clips
We would like our partner schools to find out how their communities differ and how they are similar, as well as what makes them amazing and what could be improved. Living in a global community inspires us to help empower people living in less fortunate communities. By being a part of ‘Your community, our world’, your school will be doing just that.
