Science on a Shoestring: Teaching Primary Science with almost NOTHING
How Lois Kelly and Kathy Schofield helped teachers in a Ugandan primary school develop scientific thinking with very limited resources.
“I have learnt that since science is a practical subject most of the things you teach should be practical for students to understand it” (Patrick, Ugandan primary school teacher)

From The Education Director’s Desk, Tibetan Children’s Villages, Dharamsala:
I am extremely glad Liz MacGarvey is bringing out a TCV English Resource Book, ‘OUR ENGLISH’. This has been the outcome of a long partnership with Hope One World and with Liverpool Hope University, UK, whose professors have each summer come to the TCV schools to give workshops on professional development.
Liz MacGarvey is one of the English professors who has worked for a long time with our English teachers and taught at our schools. During our time together and through the many interactions thereof, it became clear for the need to have an alternative English Resource Book for TCV schools. Thus Liz MacGarvey has taken on this responsibility singularly as a challenge and has worked very dedicatedly to produce this English Resource Book for the Middle school level. To see this work in print is an enlightening experience.
Finally, we owe our gratitude to Earthchild Charity, UK for their financial support of this project. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts, experiences, talents and above all your smiles through the pages of this book. We are proud of this family product.
Tenzing Sangpo, Education Director
Hope One World is proud is announce the publication of “In Safe Hands: Facilitating Service Learning in Schools in the Developing World” edited by Jean Clarkson, Phil Bamber and Lorna Burke, which was published in 2008 in conjunction with Trentham Books Ltd.
This book describes the evolution of voluntary service learning for teachers in the developing world and has been written by both staff and students.
Other contributing authors are Alice Bennett, Wendy Bignold, Sue Cronin, Tony Edwards, Barry Grantham, Les Hankin, Nasima Hassan, Richard Hooper, Liz MacGarvey Naomi McLeod, Keith Paterson, Lynda Richardson and Mary Stevenson.
This book came about as part of collaboration between teachers, students and pupils from the SOS Children’s Village Lilongwe, SOS Children’s Villages UK and Hope One World based at Liverpool Hope University UK. The aim of the initiative was to record the stories, poems and songs of the teachers as a resource for pupils, present, past and future, of the SOS school, and also to act as an archive of the work undertaken during this period. Some of the stories derive from the oral literature of a range of Malawian cultures as shared by teachers from different parts of the country. Others are original compositions that draw on their rich literary imagination and craft as well as reflecting aspects of contemporary Malawian society. The teachers also provided the illustrations. We hope their act of sharing, presented in this form, will be much valued and enjoyed.
