Our Peer-to-Peer Program
Children and teachers at schools like COPI face numerous challenges, including overcrowded classrooms, unsanitary latrines, too few classroom furnishings and outdated textbooks.
In 2009, we set up a classroom peer-to-peer program between students at Circle of Peace and students in the U.S. Grade school teachers and administrators in the U.S. may partner their schools with Circle of Peace School and its students through pen pal programs, fundraising and more.
It’s an excellent way to introduce students to the issues of poverty and global citizenship.
How Your School Will Benefit
Our peer-to-peer program provides resources to help your students:
Gain insight into life at a school in Uganda and understand the advantages that U.S. students and schools enjoy
Develop an interest in active life-long global citizenship
Establish personal relationships with another child
Work as a team to understand how individual and collective actions benefit others
Fundraise at School
Schools have already made a difference to Circle of Peace School by supplying:
New desks, classroom and office supplies
New school and sports team uniforms
A television set for the school and two sewing machines
