Reachout to Africa provides resources and programs free of charge and the program is open to any school whose students feel they would like to participate in and develop a humanitarian program in the international development arena. Reachout to Africa will provide informative resources to both classroom teachers and the students. The goal is to foster international communications and assistance aid between students across the globe. By inspiring students in their schools and surrounding communities and providing web 2 resources to facilitate this communication both here in Canada and in our target countries, Schools For Schools “Hope Clubs” will make a significant contribution and foster international exchange of ideas and development.
