Immediately after Typhoon Haiyan swept through the Philippines, governments across the world responded with emergency aid and assistance. We are now in the phase of rebuilding and reconstructing.
The British Army have recently released a video showing their involvement in the emergency response and giving an update on the situation in Calgnaan. Here is the video:
The Rotary Learn2Give project is designed to raise funds to rebuild Sagkahan Elementary School in Tacloban on the Philippine island of Layette. Tacloban saw the worst of the Typhoon with over 6,000 people loosing their lives.
Working with PE & Dance expert Val Sabin we have designed an OFSTED 2014 compliant unit of work for Reception, KS1 and KS2 children to learn a set of dances within their normal PE lessons. When brought together as a performance, the dances tell the story, through children eyes, of that horrendous day, 8th November 2013, that Typhoon Haiyan swept through the Philippines doing so much damage.
We are making a very small charge for each school to purchase the unit of work and we ask that any money raised from the children's performance is donated to the Learn2Give initiative.
We think of it as Children helping Children.
If you are a school teacher or involved with a "friends of the school" group please visit the Learn2Give website and sign-up to help.
