We have created a page on www.servicelearning.org with information about the service-learning/higher education response to the tsunami:
If you have additional information about how you are using service-learning to support communities impacted by natural disasters, please share them with me.
We were deeply saddened to hear about the destruction and devastation resulting from the 8.0 earthquake and tsunami that struck the Pacific near
In the spirit of helping our friends and colleagues in the region, we wanted to remind everyone of resources developed by and for the service-learning field around the issue of disaster preparedness/response through service-learning. As we all know, the service-learning community has a remarkable history of stepping up in times of crisis and leveraging opportunities to make a difference. We saw this, and continue to see this, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and now is another chance for students and institutions to lend a hand. For information and resources on this work, please see: http://www.servicelearning.org/nslc/hurricane_katrina/index.php
If anyone is aware either of service-learning activities or of needs that service-learning could fill in the region related to these events, please keep us updated.
Yours in service,
Learn and Serve
