Indonesia/Japan Mural1. INTERNATIONAL INTERCULTURAL MURAL EXCHANGES.  Between September 2009 and March 2010, 36 classes in Japan and 36 classes from 14 countries worked together on joint mural projects. They met in September, learned about a global topic they decided via the IIME forum and videoconferences in October, discussed and decided the design of their mural in November.  Then, the Japan side drew one half of a canvas in December-January, and their partner class in the other country drew the other half in January-February.  Now the murals are complete!  Lots of stories were born in the process of exchange.  Some were touching, some were interesting, some were instructive...each pair has a story of its own.  Below are some videos and news coverage of murals created during the 2009 IIME that show how this mural exchange was done internationally and inter-culturally.

Japan (Sanno ES) & Canada (Boundary ES) in January TV in Canada and paper in Canada
Japan (Kanaiwa ES) / USA (Melridge) in March TV in US and video in Japan
Japan (Okazaki Josei HS) & Pakistan (Funkor Child Art Center) video in Pakistan and paper in Pakistan
Japan (Tomorogi JHS) & Fiji (Nakaikogo JHS) paper in Fiji

The second: June-early August  The recruit number: 100 schools.  The Japanese school year has already started in April and many of them want their partners.  You are very welcome to IIME and I'm looking forward to having you this year!  Connect via the iEARN IIME Project Page.

NEWLINE reccomends: iEARN projects for Haiti
Monday, 01 March 2010

Dear friends,

 

Students and Teachers around iEARN have asked what they can do to help relieve the suffering caused by the disastrous earthquake in Haiti.  Many organizations and millions of people have responded with food, water and other relief supplies.  It’s now time to start to re-build.  Getting young people into schools so they can receive an education is one of the highest priorities. The iEARN global community is ready to assist in getting students back into schools after such situations, as we have done with other natural disasters like the earthquake in Bam, Iran and the tidal waves/tsunamis that hit South and Southeast Asia several years ago.

 

We hope you become involved in one of the three following initiatives:

 

1) Equipping one or more schools in Mirebalais, which are working to meet the needs of large numbers of homeless refugees

2) Health/trauma Center

3) Power From the Sun – solar cookers

 

For more info, see http://iearn.org/supportforhaiti.html or read below.

1) Equipping one or more schools in Mirebalais with a kitchen

 

Students and teachers involved in the Natural Disasters Youth Summit (NDYS) have created an NDYS Fund in which there is money raised by iEARN students and from which schools can apply for financial assistance in the rebuilding after such disasters. iEARN  participants have already raised over US $12,000 for such emergencies in past requests.

 

Fatem, a group in Haiti, has asked for our help to help equip schools in the Mirebalais area, outside Port-au-Prince as part of its “Learning to Read and Write is a Right” program.   12 schools need help to meet the huge numbers of refugee children who have been made homeless by the earthquake.  These schools need to be able to serve hot food to meet basic needs such as food and nutrition.  It is clear that a child cannot learn if they cannot sleep or eat on a regular basis.   

 

In spite of many challenges, Haitians express a remarkable and widespread thirst to learn. Education is high priority for parents and, despite family poverty, tight-knit families demonstrate a passion and willingness to sacrifice in order to send their next generation to school.  School feeding programs have the potential to combat hunger and support nutrition through micronutrient-fortified food and de-worming. They provide an incentive for families to send their children to school—and keep them there— while improving their children’s education.

 

Food is available from international organizations, but kitchens need to be built to enable schools to provide education and nutrition.  A school kitchen can be built in 14 days and costs about $11,000, which includes the oven, roof, staffing for 10 months, etc.  Can we build at least one school kitchen?  Fatem will arrange for feedback to iEARN students from the schools newly equipped with a kitchen.

 

This NDYS Fund is ready to receive your contributions to make this rebuilding possible.  Can you help? If your iEARN community is able to help, please send contributions of any size to:

2) Health/Trauma Center

 

The NDYS members in Trinidad and Tobago have also created an account for donations.  They will work with UNICEF focus on health and trauma issues in assisting Haitians recover from this tragedy by creating a trauma center.

 

Republic Bank of Trinidad and Tobago, Natural Disasters Youth Summit, Acct # 879 134 465 531

Refer to NDYSTT in the wire transfer.

 

Children in Haiti hit by a massive earthquake risk long-term physical and psychological trauma unless they are treated quickly.  Up to two million children could be affected by the earthquake - children under the age of 18 make up nearly half of Haiti's 10 million population according to UNICEF.

 

Many schools collapsed in the remor when children would have been in schools; plus 4 million people live in and around the capital.  Many children have lost their parents and homes - It is with this in mind that the Natural Disasters Youth Summit Trinidad and Tobago, are calling on all to help the children and youth of Haiti

3) Power from the Sun

 

As you all know, the people of Haiti have recently suffered a terrible catastrophe.

 

It is times like these that the basic necessities such as food and water are vital to the well-being of millions of Haitian residents.

 

Unfortunately, they lack the resources to cook their food. They would benefit immensely by having solar cookers to allow them to cook their meals and pasteurize water by using the widely available power of sunlight.

 

Together with SunOven.com, Feed My Starving Children, and Friends of Haiti the students and teachers at the iEARN school Miami Country Day School in Miami, Florida are trying to send as many solar ovens as possible to help sterilize medical instruments and to serve food in the newly established tent cities.

 

Solar Ovens cook 24/7 with their propane attachment and can make 2,000 meals per day. There is an established network of solar cooker experts in Haiti.  Donations can be made at: http://www.powerfromthesun.us/_/Our_Cause.html
