OneSeed is focused on developing long term relationships with teachers, administrators, and schools in the goal of creating sustainable change. Teachers are partnered with a OneSeed Professional Trainer for a year-long training program and taken through four phases of learning; Building Relationships, Classroom Management, Teaching Methods, and Differentiation.
Teachers receive training on how to identify struggling and advanced learners in their classrooms. Schools will develop a Special Education Department to help meet the needs of all their learners for years to come with the help of the OneSeed Differentiation Guide.
Teacher receive IT Integration training that enables them to integrate technology into every subject area. Teachers learn how to use technology to prepare lessons, track student growth, and communicate effectively with colleagues and parents.
Cultural Education Project
Each school joins in a partnership with a school in the USA. Students in each school will take their learning to another level as they teach their sister school about their own country and culture. These projects will create an environment for global minded, student-led learning while meeting state and national standards.
OneSeed, alongside partner school administration, will determine the primary resource needs for the sister school in Ghana. The school in the USA will work with OneSeed to raise funds to provide these resources. Our goal is to help students enhance their community service skills and practice positive global citizenship.
In Partnership with City Hearts Africa
We are very excited to be partnering with City Hearts Africa to implement their Emerging Voices Educational Pack into our teacher training program. City Hearts Africa is an independent NGO founded in 2015 form City Hearts UK, a charity that exists to help those whose lives have been torn apart by Human Trafficking and life controlling issues.
This education pack covers a broad span of material, ranging from creative arts workshops to heritage site visits, designed to educate young people on historical slavery and Human Trafficking in Ghana. Students in Basic 6 will teach their communities what they learned through creative arts in an effort to bring awareness to the issues in order to prevent human trafficking in Ghana.
In Partnership with Start From Ghana Foundation
OneSeed is so grateful to be partnering with Start From Ghana Foundation to bring their Sisterhood Program into our partner schools. This program educates young women by creating an open space for discussion around the topics that are essential for young ladies like hygiene, sanitation, personal goals and self-esteem. Girls receive menstrual hygiene packs. The cost of sanitary items often keep girls home and out of school during their menses.
