THE STORY:

Our Mission: To empower young people from around the world through connection in order to discuss REAL issues, solve REAL problems and find REAL solutions.
The Global Schoolhouse was founded as an effort to connect students from all parts of the world in order to provide authentic learning opportunities and forge avenues for communication so young people can discuss issues affecting their own lives. It is our dream that through the power of connection we can provide educational opportunities for all and transform lives in the process.
The founders include a principal of a large urban school, a clerk who is connected with our Spanish speaking population, an amazing 6th grade literacy teacher, a high school student, and an elementary student who are all interested in creating opportunities for authentic education while transforming lives of others at the same time.
We hope to connect at least 60 youth at our school {to start} with 60 students living at The Shangila Children's Home in rural Easter Kenya.  We want to raise enough money for a laptop (http://one.laptop.org/) and a school uniform in order for these students to connect and start the discussion about REAL issues, REAL problems and find REAL solutions to problems affecting their lives.
