Night Zookeeper partners with children’s home and refugee NPO

We are pleased to report a partnership with the Japanese NPO, YouMeWE.

Thanks to this fantastic organisation, Night Zookeeper is now being used by children’s homes in Japan, charity schools in the Philippines, and by children from Syria, in refugees camps.

YouMeWe is an NPO based in Japan and focused primarily on the plight of over 30,000 children living in orphanages and children’s homes. Night Zookeeper has provided YouMeWe with free access to NightZookeeper.com for the children that they work with in their homes across the country. We have also trained volunteers on the use of the website. We did this because we are keen to ensure that the children don’t experience a ‘digital divide’ and fall behind others because of a lack of access to digital educational resources like Night Zookeeper.

The future will be shaped by technology and therefore access to the Internet, is vital for all children. Having the opportunity to connect, learn and play with technical tools will ensure they are prepared for their future. It will open up the job market and enrich them as human beings.

Night Zookeeper’s Lesson Hive, shares lessons created by teachers from around the world from the United States to New Zealand. The lessons created by these trained teachers can then be used by volunteers working with children in need across the world.

I want to personally thank every teacher that has created a lesson for Lesson Hive. They are being put to exceptional use!

Thanks again to everyone who supports, uses and subscribes to Night Zookeeper for their class, school or home. You are helping the world become a more creative place and spreading the light of learning into some of the most disadvantaged children in the word.

Fall/Autumn Writing Prompts – 2019

These prompts are designed to spark creativity and imagination within children. We encourage children to think about what they like about the season fall, but also ask them to create characters that would fit within a ‘fall environment’. Other writing ideas encourage the child to write about a memory they have about fall or an opinion they might have about it.

We’re excited to launch a ‘Writing Mentors’ scheme with Colt Technology Services (the same company that has kindly sponsored access for selected classes in the UK).  How does it work? Each month, we’ll send class blogs to volunteers at Colt. They will spend designated time leaving helpful, encouraging comments on writing produced by your students. You will need to publish writing regularly this term in order to take part.   *Do you want your class to take part? Simply complete this 3-question survey and […]
