In our efforts to develop a love of learning, a culture of literacy and to expose the children to the outside world at an early age, and create a generation that is aware of global citizenship, Akili Preparatory School first graders will be exchanging letters with their counterparts from Freedom Christian Academy, AZ,USA. The children will write and exchange letters about their activities, family, hometown, hobbies, pets, sports, school days etc regularly.
The Akili prep school kids will be taught writing skills during the library sessions at Akili Library every week and will then get a chance to write to and reply letters from their friends at FCA. This will give the children invaluable practice in handwriting, constructing sentences and improve their communication skills besides offering learning experiences about life in other parts of the world.
The goal of this program is to expose the children to the outside world at an early age and contribute to their development as global citizens. This will in the long run expose both sets of students to the global issues and change their perceptions of different places and people and build understanding and friendship across borders. Both schools are Christian schools and the children will have a lot to share and learn from each other and spread the love of God to their neighbors in Africa and in USA. Pray for the success of this program.
