Global Connections Campaign Update
Dear Members and Friends of iEARN-USA,
Thank you for the positive response to our year-end Global Connections Campaign. We’ve already reached 42% of our goal. That means that we can support more than 200 U.S. teachers and their 5,000 students to learn with, not just about, their peers in Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, UAE, and Yemen.
We’ve been moved by your comments and contributions to this campaign. One of our donors, Jo Anne, dedicates her contribution to iEARN with the following words:
For the world’s children, who deserve our love, protection, and support for a life of learning.
We’d love your continued help over the next two weeks to share word of this campaign to enable as many U.S. classrooms as possible to participate in this exciting opportunity to engage in hands-on, people-to-people, global collaborative projects at a critical time in U.S.-Middle East relations.
Contributions allow us to offer online course scholarships to U.S. high school teachers new to iEARN. Teachers who complete the course, which will guide educators in evaluating and aligning global projects with curriculum standards, may also have a chance to participate in iEARN’s Annual Conference in Qatar in July 2013. To take part in this opportunity, teachers are encouraged to fill out the statement of interest by December 31, 2012.
Thanks and happy holidays from iEARN-USA.
