OUR WORK IN ZAMBIA
In this video Abraham, (a local primary school teacher and ambassador for The Online School) is shown teaching young girls from his village about how to use the computer and online conferencing software to interact with the teacher during lessons.
We have formulated some amazing partnerships to ensure The Online School can thrive.
We have ambassadors for The Online School in 18 countries. They are able to help us better understand the cultural landscape in their respective countries but are also instrumental in helping us to reach out to vulnerable communities within their localities.
The Online School has teamed up with Team Humanity who primarily help save refugees in Greece. We are working with them to create an “always-on” Online Schooling Hub within Camp Moria (which is home to more than 5,000 children).
