COCO facilitates partnerships between schools in the UK and those across East Africa. School partnership provides a mutually beneficial education programme.
Linking activities in the past have included the exchange of ‘Flat Stanley’ drawings and questions to children, phone calls and the exchange of photos. By linking with one of our communities the pupils in your school will learn more about a specific village, the children who live there and what their school is like. By fundraising for a chosen community your pupils will be able to see for themselves how their help has had a direct impact and has made a lasting difference.
For an example of a successful school partnership which COCO has facilitated, please see the partnership between Mercy Primary and Regent Farm.
