• Little Learners

    The latest from The Flamingo Foundation...

    Introducing 'Little Learners' - creating a global community to help disadvantaged children access and engage with education at home & away.

    LITTLE LEARNERS AT HOME

    We create multi-sensory Culture Kits for primary school children. Designed to tackle xenophobia head on, the kits enhance children’s understanding of different cultures at an early age.

    The UK has been fast-tracked along the road to multi-culturalism over the last couple of decades so it’s really important that our future leaders are educated about different cultures so they are able to live with both understanding and empathy for others.

    Unfortunately the level of access to an interactive range of educational tools on global and UK cultures varies dramatically by school across the UK.

    Our Culture Kits bridge this gap with engaging and interactive activities – they’re also great for kids with extra educational needs and learning disabilities.

    LITTLE LEARNERS OVERSEAS

    We believe that access to education is the best route out of poverty. Little Learners overseas works to make schooling accessible for all.

    This year we are focusing on two key projects. One is aimed at tackling rural poverty in Kenya and the other tackling social violence in Brazil – where kids as young as 7 are part of armed gangs. We will be giving these children access to education which they would not otherwise have by building new classrooms, providing text books, training teachers and creating a safe environment where everyone wants to learn and has the chance to do so.

    LITTLE LEARNERS GLOBAL COMMUNITY

    Kids all around the world should have the opportunity to learn and grow together – and in doing so, help each other.

    To do this, we link up participants in our ‘Home & Away’ projects using the latest technology to unite children around the globe via:

    - Skype link ups

    - Participating in educational sessions together through Google Hangout

    - Video diaries and messages

    - Photo exchange

    Our Little Learners all over the world are learning and growing together and these activities unite children from different global communities to be able to see, hear and cultivate new friendships. The aim is to help them see outside their immediate community, and we want them to dare to dream about other possibilities for a life they could lead.
