Tinogona Global Curriculum
Increasingly, we live in an interdependent and interconnected world, where it is fundamentally important to offer resources for cultural exchange to promote a greater understanding of global issues, and how they relate to outcomes behind education, cultures, gender and environmental and economic systems etc.
The TTI Foundation believes that it is not only important for African children to gain an understanding of the educational tools and systems so commonly found throughout the United States, but that it is also important to increase opportunities for American students to gain knowledge about Africa.
Therefore, the Tinogona Global Curriculum is designed with American teachers in mind, to be used within the United States school system. Connecting with students in other countries and from other cultures is important for the growth of all children.
Therefore, the establishment of the Tinogona Global Curriculum not only allows TTI to work with schools (K-12) in other countries, but also will increase our presence within the international forum.
The curriculum promotes empathy and encouraging students to think about how they might play a role in making a positive change in the world.
