Helping Teachers in need
We use our revenue to give students and teachers in need, a helping hand, one STARFISH at a time.
I Love To Teach seeks to provide quality educational resources to use in remote under-resourced schools in Solomon Islands. Eileen Fomani, in the photo, was trained and sponsored by I Love to Teach 101. Eileen was Sylvia’s first trainee teacher, she is now a sought after primary teacher in the Islands.
Every time you make a purchase or a sale, you help the Love To Teach Foundation give a helping hand to Solomon Island teachers in need. If you wish, you maybe interested in taking a holiday and giving up a day or half a day to share your teaching skills at our annual Education Workshops in Solomon Islands? Please contact us for further information if you’d like to participate in any way.
Giving a helping hand to students and teachers in need may seem insignificant. However, there is a story originally written as the ‘Star Thrower’ by Loren Eiseley, a philosopher and teacher, who explains the importance of little things.
Here’s my simple paraphrase. There was a woman who saw a boy throwing starfish back into the ocean. When she asked the boy what he was doing. The boy replied, “I am throwing the starfish back into the ocean so they do not dry up and die.” She replied “But just like the sand on the beach, It’s impossible to throw ALL the starfish back into the ocean”.
The boy looked at the starfish in his hand. As he gently threw it back into the water, he said “It mattered to that one.”
Whether you take time to read our educational musings or complete one of our courses, or choose to purchase from our online shop, or open a stall in our shop, know that you are truly making a difference in the lives of teachers and students who have less than us.
