Activities

Sister School Program provides members with the support on how to start and maintain a Sister Schools program in respective schools in Ghana. 

The program facilitates the pairing of schools in the communities with their international counterparts in sister city partnerships.  Sister Schools interact by doing collaborative projects together; ranging from sharing of information and knowledge and involved in humanitarian projects between Sister Schools through exchange visits.


We also organize in-country educational tours for member schools to enable them in-depth knowledge and understanding about their local environment and rich natural and cultural heritage that abound in Ghana. 

Sister- Schools Ghana helps teachers get started by providing them with Project Ideas but are also encouraged to design their own project and curriculum for their schools and linking Ghana schools with schools worldwide.


Benefits
Sister Schools enables students gain international awareness by learning from their international peers, and view the world from a new perspective.

Students learn how to plan, conduct, and complete a project; all while creating bonds that surpass boundaries with their Sister School peers.  In this age of globalization and technology, nations are becoming more connected and interdependent everyday. International studies are an imperative focus for today's youth and their future success.

Classrooms separated by border, culture, and geography are united through similar interests and common principles as students participate in common projects ranging from literature and social development to science and technology.

By connecting classrooms worldwide, we use the academic setting to conquer ignorance, bridge cultural gaps, and create international friendships.

Participating teachers and students can benefit greatly from worldwide connections and for the impact these connections can make in broadening their educational experience and understanding of different cultures.


This first of all enables Ghana schools learn more about their own environment through our activities which include local educational tours to enable them share useful information resources with the international community.
