Introduction

Coursework A- Evaluation of Participation and responsible action in a school and the community. In my 'Active citizenship' coursework I will be I will be looking at and evaluating the responsible action(s) I undertook in my school, and I will be looking at what I have gained and learnt from these activities. In February 2005, a campaign began; this was called MakePovertyHistory or MPH. The aim of this campaign was to get rid of poverty from poor countries in Africa. During our citizenship lessons we all watched a short video which was entitled 'Send my friend to school' .In this video, we were shown about the poverty problems in Africa currently and the problems children in Africa faced, for example, the fact the 30,0000 are people dying 'needlessly' every ...read more.
