Lasting Connections – An S2S Greeting Card from Bangladesh to Pennsylvania
It has been about 18 months since Lancaster Country Day School Teacher Sam Schindler visited the Carter Academy to serve as a volunteer teacher through the School-2-School program but the partnership the two school forged continues. Over the holidays, TCA sent brownies and cards to Sam’s class in the U.S. and we’ve just gotten a look at the card Sam’s students sent back. Sam is now working on an effort to visit the school again in the near future.
All of us at AUA are proud to see the LCDS-TCA relationship continue as a great example of lasting people-to-people partnerships.
From the Carter Academy’s website:
“Thanks to School to School program run by Creative Learning a non-profit organization in the United States, America’s Unofficial Ambassadors (AUA), a citizen diplomacy initiative which builds mutual understanding and enhances people-to-people partnerships between America and the Muslim World. The boys and girls of Lancaster Country Day School and The Carter Academy, in a remote village Matlab, Bangladesh are connected through internet, skype and when skype does not work via exchange of videos. This is a unique concept bridging two cultures uniting them into one human race while having different religious beliefs, language and multiple races.”
