ICEHA SCHOLARS PROGRAM
ICEHA Scholars are exemplary children and young
adults who have demonstrated intellectual
curiosity and a keen desire to learn. They would
not have the ability to attend school if not for an
ICEHA provides school supplies, uniforms, shoes,
tuition, and some receive food and healthcare. As
part a pilot program in Cameroon, siblings and
parents also receive assistance so the family's
livelihood isn't jeopardized when their student
attends school rather than working.
Past scholarships have been awarded for
kindergarten, primary, secondary and high school,
as well as college and technical school.
ICEHA is also working with E-Gap to deliver teacher
training to remote areas where teachers would
otherwise have no means of continuing education
ICEHA's Global Classroom Initiative® (GCI)
This unique program unites teachers and students around the world in a community classroom. Where we are able to bridge the technology divide, students and teachers develop friendships and attend classes together in real-time. Where such communications are not possible, we use creative methods to assure that teachers and students around the world are able to form friendships and learn together.
GCI partner schools participate in Global Read Aloud programs, send videos and birthday cards back and forth, and US children raise funds and donate school supplies to their friends who are not as fortunate as they are. One such school donated over 1200 pounds of school supplies last year, which was distributed to our students in Cameroon, DRC, Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, and Sierra Leone. This year, US school children hosted creative fundraisers and raised $3000 towards new bore holes for a village in Ghana, teaching lessons in ingenuity to their partners in that village who are now hosting their own fundraisers. Through such partnerships, children learn valuable lessons about themselves and the world around them.
ICEHA has also donated laptop computers in Nigeria and Ghana, andrecently just launched our first international "Hour of Code" class with Ghanaian and American children in one global classroom. With our partners at Education Global Access Program (E-Gap), we also recently launched the Rural Internet Technology Training Program for students in rural schools who would otherwise have no access to computer training.
