Just as the children share responsibility for caring for the school environments, we feel that they should be aware of the responsibility we all have towards our planet. To that end, we have several environmental projects in each school.
Each school sponsors a child from a different corner of the world. We follow the education of the child until they reach 18. This gives us an opportunity to look at other cultures and for the children to feel they can make a difference in the world.
Discussing environmental issues is a fundamental part of our philosophy. This covers all topics from recycling to using wind power in our schools.
There are many celebrations that the ICEC shares with the children from all around the world. But thanksgiving is a very concrete way in which we can encourage the children to give to others. By putting food parcels together and delivering them to the SOS village the children truly experience the act of giving.
Whether our pets or animals in the wild we look at how to treat and respect them, and to protect their habitat.
All of the above encourage children to share, care, empathize and take responsibility for their planet.
