We are students from Tamsalu Gymnasium, Estonia. Our school is located in northeastern Estonia and has about 400 students. We study global education where we learn about global problems including climate change. Our sister school is Eubere High School in Kenya. We have focused on climate change in our video and are interested in learning more about Kenya’s and other countries’ viewpoints on this subject. We believe that people should talk about climate change to make others aware of the severity of this issue. We must take care of our planet while we are still young and able to do so as we have to live here for the rest of our lives. We also have to protect the planet for the sake of younger generations who will live here one day. Everybody has the responsibility of keeping Earth alive.
Since the beginning of year 2021 we have been working hard to start the activities for our new school network project called “Climate Change and Us”. Young people from Estonia, Afghanistan, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda and Ukraine will be looking into how climate change affects them and their communities. We will collect stories about climate change, learn about storytelling and video editing and share these stories with our peers from other countries. Learning about the effects of climate change on the world will help us take action against it together.
So let’s start learning and sharing what we know with others. We’re all excited to get to know each other better. 🙂

Check here how Oskar and Eva – Maria start their morning and find out what other activities they do during the schoolday in Estonia!
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!
