Fundraising Support

As teachers, we do a lot of fundraising. Sometimes we run out of ideas and don't want to bore the community, students or ourselves with the same old things. Check out some of our recommendations and access templates you can use when networking with your community!

Character Development

This link will help you integrate the Garnier FindingLife Expedition to Africa with character development initiatives within your school community. We have reflection questions, project ideas and resources to help your students embed positive character traits into their own lives.

Climbing Your Own Mountain - One school's story

Learn about how one school created their own FindingLife experience by mirroring Elia Saikaly's 2010 Expedition to Mt. Everest right here at home! This link is filled with creative ideas and practical resources to assist schools in planning schoolwide events that would allow you to mirror the 2011 Garnier FindingLife Expedition to Africa. A great way to sum up your FindingLife adventure!

Curriculum Connections

As teachers with FindingLife, we have seen how enthusiastic and engaged students are with FindingLife Expeditions. Educators can channel that enthusiasm into cross-curricular activities by making "real-world" connections between subjects areas and the adventures taking place in Solio, Kenya. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Literacy Resources

With so much attention focused on student literacy, why not use FindingLife resources to encourage students in reading, writing and oral communication! Here's how...

The Solio Story

Learn more about the History of the Solio region and the hardships people have experienced. Resources are provided to assist you in teaching your students about Africa, Kenya and Solio specifically.
