Dear members, Below is a compilation of requests for information sent to the Global Human Rights Education listserv during the past week. At the bottom of each request you will find an e-mail address, so that you can respond to the request directly.

1. SEEKING MATERIALS FOR TEACHING HUMAN RIGHTS IN SCHOOLS IN GHANA – Teaching for Freedom Foundation is a human rights non governmental organisation in Ghana that recruits teachers at the basic level of education as volunteers in the teaching of human rights education. These teachers are trained to incorporate human rights in their lessons during the normal teaching periods. To augment our activities we are in the process of developing a comprehensive manual for the teaching of HR in primary and junior high schools in Ghana. We also require any other learning materials that can promote the teaching of HR in schools. Anyone who has assistance in this direction could contact us via the e-mail address below. The Executive Director, Teaching For Freedom Foundation (TFF), Ghana, E-mail.

Our organization is called Orphan and Vulnerable Children (OVC) Network Ethiopia and we work with more than 120 members.

We want to learn from other networks engaged in similar undertakings. We request the readers of this note to support us in any way and you can reach us by email.
