GLC School Tour

.
The school tour brings a program to 10-20 IDP sites during a 1-2 month period. Students from surrounding villages will travel, sometimes from as far away as a day’s walk, to come to the program. The program includes singing, spiritual and moral encouragement, drama, crafts, games and healthcare relevant to the local health issues (e.g. malaria, malnutrition, and sanitation). During the program, the medics conduct a clinic for the village while other team members construct a latrine or do other village development projects. Interviews are conducted to assess the educational, security and other material needs of the village. Money and school supplies are given to the teacher; and each child, as well as many of the mothers, receives a gift, such as a shirt or a warm hat or a pack that includes vitamins, a toy, and an article of clothing
