Through the Global Classroom Project, we’ve met some amazing educators around the world, one of whom is Govinda Panthy, the founder and director of the Shantideep Adarsh Vidhyasadan (SAV) School in Nepal (http://savschool.wordpress.com).
About the SAV School
The SAV School is one of the most amazing little schools we’ve ever discovered, with its’ director and students making a significant global impact through their online connections with classes around the world. With a solitary (slow) Internet connection, and two laptops, the students of the SAV School, Nepal are more globally connected than many students in the Western world. And they are sharing, learning, and collaborating in a little village school with wooden desks, dirt floors, and mud walls.
Recently, #globalclassroom teacher Wendi Pillars visited the SAV School – you can read her story here. I am hoping to personally make the trek in a few years time.
The Open World Cause – Supporting the Future of the SAV School
Through Govinda, we met the founders of the Open World Cause, an American charity dedicated to supporting the SAV School, and currently working to raise funds to secure its long-term future. This group of college students have taken it upon themselves to help make the essential work of SAV School possible, and they truly deserve our public and financial support. You can learn about their story here, and visit their official website at http://www.openworldcause.com/.
