On March 18th, 2019 Sasamani Scholars visited an American Corner as part of the social interaction activity for students. American Corners are informational spaces designed by the U.S. Embassy, typically hosted in schools, libraries, and other institutions worldwide. Such partnerships allow for visitors to learn about the United States through a multifunctional platform which introduces public diplomacy programs and overall, American Corners help maintain open dialogue and counteract negative stereotypes. Spaces like American Corners are designed to build bridges of understanding while exposing the host country to various forms of technological advancements.
Over 60 teachers and students were in attendance and were well received. The Sasamani Foundation is dedicated to fostering spaces which build bridges of understanding. This particular activity was a great learning experience for both students and teachers. The Sasamani team would like to thank Gladness, our Education Director, for her incredible work with our scholars and for coordinating such a thoughtful activities for our Sasamani family.
