International Relations students involve whole campus in their studies

During a recent assignment, students in our International Relations (IR) class involved our whole campus in their assignment regarding NGOs (non-government organizations).

As a part of their elective course, IR, students were asked to investigate how NGOs work – structure, economic financing, their purpose and impact.  In addition, students were challenged with raising awareness and support for their particular NGO.

One group shared via social media:

The Malala FundOver 60 million girls are missing out on education because they have to work, are married off early, lack access to school facilities, or have to care for younger siblings, denying them their fundamental right to education. Malala Fund works in several different countries; Nigeria, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Kenya as well as Syria. The different countries require different strategies to achieve the goal of 12 years of free education for girls. For example, to increase percentage of girls receiving education in Pakistan, the donation aids received has gone to repairing damaged schools, providing with education material, and also increasing enrollment for girls at secondary school in order to provide education for vulnerable and married girls as well.

Malala Fund is a non-profit organisation and we are now accepting donations. Every donation counts.

About kristylundstrom

I currently work as Head at Viktor Rydberg Gymnasium in Djursholm. I am a student of learning. I am interested to see where it happens, when it happens, and how it happens. I am also a math and computer science teacher. I have lived in Belgium and in the USA. I really appreciate my multi-cultural environment - I believe it adds dynamics to our school.
