This school year 2018/19 the school linking focus is on the everyday life of children/youth in different countries. For this we collected short videos with our volunteers’ help in Estonia, Ukraine, Ghana and Uganda.
Short video is taken with a camera or a cell phone.
In January NGO Mondo volunteer Olle Kaidro and WEFOCO school coordinator Sophia Malaha visited different schools in Uganda and Kenya, among them Mukambi Primary School. During their visit, students drew pictures of various plants and animals that could be found near their school.
Students were given drawings made by the students of Pärnu Rääma Basic School. They were fascinated to see some Estonian animals and learn their Estonian names.
After seeing the drawings students were eager to draw their own.
Students were inspired by the surroundings
Everyone were excited and had lots of fun. Especially commenting on each other’s pictures.
They wrote down the name of the animal in English and in their language, suahili.
All of the drawings were gathered to send them to their partner school, Pärnu Rääma Basic School.
Every one were active and really enjoyed the day. Hopefully the pictures will be as well received as the pictures from Estonia!

Hello! We are St. Stephen’s Eshiakhulo Secondary School in Kenya. Our WILD Nature activities involved groupwork around two tasks – messages of plants and making dolls with reused materials and natural materials. All students could work on the project they liked!
We hope our partner school, Toila Gymnasium will see them and organize their project work around the same topic.
Here you can see the pictures we draw. The most important plants in our nature are sugar cane and lemon tree with local importance and coffee tree as an international export article.
The second group worked on making dolls. We used materials that we could easily find – plastic bags, seeds, plant fibers. It was really fun to get creative and make something with our hands! The ready-made dolls we brought to our younger siblings.
You can see the process from these pictures and the video:
