Mubarak was struck by the poverty in which the boy and his peers lived and studied.
He decided to rebuild Víctor’s family’s humble dwelling as a two-story home, help Víctor’s mother start a small business, and give $2,000 to the boy (in his mother’s care).
At Perryfields we have developed a homework menu which encourages children to become independent learners and take responsibility for choosing their own homework. The Peri-ometer suggests the difficulty or challenge the homework may offer.
This article reports on a qualitative study done in Johannesburg, South Africa, which investigated attitudes of primary school principals of eight public primary schools towards the use of homework in teaching and learning in the Foundation Phase (which comprises the first three grade levels of primary schooling).
So, Mubarak traveled from his small island country (a quarter of the size of Rhode Island) in the Persian Gulf to Moche, Peru, to meet the boy in person.
Photos of the encounter show the Bahraini businessman hugging Víctor, posing with his family, and lying on the ground reading books with him, apparently imitating Victor’s position when he was caught by the security cameras studying by streetlight.Lokale Informationen finden Sie auf der Webseite von PERI Deutschland.
