As primary pupils up and down the country join the fun and games of Sport Relief, it is important they do not forget why they are taking part and the difference that their fundraising can make to other people’s lives.
Money raised through Sport Relief helps people living incredibly tough lives both here in the UK and across the world’s poorest countries – with a portion of funds going to projects that support working children to get an education, giving them a chance to build a better life for themselves and their family.
This thought-provoking lesson focuses on the issue of working children in Ghana where, confronted with the stark realities of poverty, over 10,000 children risk their lives doing back-breaking work in informal gold mines.
With the help of visual stimuli, pupils will engage imaginatively with the Ghanaian children’s day-to-day lives and start to think about the best ways to help child workers around the world.
