21/03: Village to Village
"It takes a village to raise a child," and it certainly takes many villages to build a school! Our Village-to-Village campaign began with Marblehead Village School, which extended its help to the village of Wunlang. Then followed Lynn Classical High School and the Brookwood School of Manchester, MA.
Other "villages" have followed. Among the communities of faith, we have been helped by First Lutheran Church of Lynn, St. Paul Lutheran Church of Arlington, Trinity Baptist Church of Arlington, and the Lutheran Church of Newton. Among service organizations, Rotary International has been most helpful. We've made several presentations to Rotary Clubs around greater Boston, and we enjoyed a workshop on Rotary's literacy program, the Concentrated Language Encounter.
As the villagers in Wunlang have finished their bricks and wait for the arrival of our construction manager, perhaps your "village" -- your school, your house of worship, your club -- would be moved to join our village. Feel free to contact us us about a presentation.
Our Village-to-Village program coordinator is Alex Rittershaus. You can see what he was able to accomplish at his high school here.
