Integrating Africa’s Story into Global Education

The Patricia Baine Teach Africa Program

Our flagship program, Teach Africa, has developed a multidisciplinary package of educational
materials for teachers who seek to integrate lessons and information about Africa into the curriculum so that students learn about Africa in the context of an evolving world.

Perhaps now, more than ever, the life of every American is inextricably shaped by what happens in other regions of the world. Given the current complex and integrated nature of international affairs, it is especially important that we equip students with the knowledge, understanding, skills and values required to live and work competitively in a global environment. And to be effective, our youth must be prepared to be the goodwill ambassadors of tomorrow.

International education is not only necessary for inevitable interaction with the international community; it is equally important to basic, everyday interactions in our cities, schools, work environments, and neighborhoods.
