About this Project

EduDeo Learning Leaders Darlene Eerkes and Bernice Stieva will work with Ghanaian educators and leaders to build on last year's training.

The International Needs Ghana (INGH) vision for Christian Education will guide our learning this year: Shaping heads, hearts and hands for Christ-centered education to transform the world. We will be deepening our teacher practice of looking at curriculum to reveal God’s Story, while finding our role in this story.  Detailed teacher unit writing and lesson writing will be shared, demonstrated and practiced with the intent to engage students in learning about their role in God’s Story. 

Whether we are studying about politics, local/global communities, water resources, matter and electricity, patterns and shapes, environmental issues or any other key concepts suggested in the local Ghanaian curriculum, we will search for the meaningful learning that makes us active citizens in the Kingdom of God, passionately seeking to make a lasting impact on our families, our neighbors and communities around the world.  Participants will be learners together in developing effective teaching strategies to make learning experiences come alive in the classroom so they are  remembered and practiced for a life-time, in transforming the world.

Educators and leaders from INGH will also share how last year’s training has already started to impact Christ-centred education throughout the country, both in the classroom and at the leadership level.

This is extremely exciting and inspiring work. Remembering the depth of our work in 2017 and the joy in celebrating our calling to be active Christians in education - makes planning and preparing a delight. I look forward to connecting again with my African brothers and sisters in Ghana... to learn with them ... to worship with them and to see them again!
