Exploring fundamental life questions
It is Rachman’s fervent desire and the purpose of Global Village Connect to improve American student’s awareness and understanding of life in Uganda. Rachman shares his experiences through conversing with students and engaging them in his music. The robust question and answer sessions allow U.S. students to explore some very poignant and fundamental life questions. Bringing Rachman to your school is part of Global Village Connect’s mission to assist educators in providing awareness, support materials and even exchanges to enable American students to become global citizens.
Global Village Connect provides a global perspective for your students to addresses such universal issues as hunger, poverty, education, child labor, overcoming hardships, and sustainable improvements for communities. Our community connections allows your students to maintain relationships with peer schools in Africa, Asia, and Central America.
As your students get to know more about partner communities, we work closely with you to plan service projects and implement solutions benefiting students and their communities on opposite sides of the world (e.g., Give a Goat, community ovens, building wells or school farms.). Global Village Connect provides classroom materials that enhance writing, storytelling, multicultural studies, economics, geography, and technology components to supplement your existing curriculum.

The lost art of the pen pal is alive and well at Radnor Middle School and Buppala Primary School. They have shared words and pictures and wonderings for seven years now. During our March community outreach trip these pen pals show what it’s like to have a friend very far away.

You’re a part of us, and we’re a part of you. We follow your progress and celebrate your milestones. We are your cheerleaders far away, and we’re so lucky to have you in our lives. I know the feeling is entirely mutual.
Students at Radnor Middle School have been busy crafting funky, tie-dyed collars and leashed for the 50 milk goats that will be delivered to children at Buppala Primary School later this month. The goats — funded by Radnor students, friends and families — will change the health and welfare of multitudes of families.
Through a pen pal exchange between the two schools, the village of Buppala has been transformed over the past seven years. Radnor students have learned that they have the capacity to literally raise up a village, and Buppala students are learning that they can sustain an organic garden, develop a small business from their crops, and feed each student a healthy meal every day they attend school.
Sixth grade teacher Jodi Sabre will be traveling to Uganda to help deliver the goats to Buppala families and will share pictures and stories on her blog.
