Linking together for human rights

Teachers in Action: UK-Palestine teachers’ exchange.

Northampton meetingWe have just had a visit from Palestine to help us plan CADFA’s next exchanges between the two countries.

Our teachers’ exchange, funded by Erasmus +, will bring a group of teachers to the UK in January 2016. They will work with teachers from linked schools in Britain to make some projects for the children in their schools and will work on these for several months. Then in October 2016, teachers from the UK schools will visit Palestine.

It’s a very exciting project and we are pleased that it will not only support Camden-Abu Dis school links but links also between schools across the country. During this visit, we talked to people in twinning groups in the following places and we hope they will all be part of the project: Northampton, Haringey, Tower Hamlets, Pendle, Worcester, Hackney, Liverpool, Llanidloes.

We’re delighted that the National Union of Teachers will also sponsor the project and they will host a conference on Twinning Schools in UK and Palestine on 16th January 2016. More information on Teachers in Action from contact@cadfa.org.
