MSF resources for schools

About our resources

We are the world’s leading independent medical humanitarian aid organisation working in over 65 countries around the world. We provide emergency medical aid in countries affected by war, natural disasters or outbreaks of disease.

Working with teachers and a subject association, we have developed a series of multimedia teaching and learning materials.

These resources have been carefully matched to Awarding Body specifications and have been informed by detailed review of Examiners' Reports.

If you are looking for general English language material introducing MSF please consider this welcome video and its corresponding transcript.

This video looks at the ways we travel to reach our patients and has a corresponding transcript

We also offer an 'Introducing MSF' presentation and a selection of printable posters and leaflets

We have developed a special series of COVID-19 resources for parents and teachers to use at home. These resources are for children learning languages, sciences and PSHE at varying levels.

These resources are for teachers to use during assemblies, tutor time or PSHE. The teacher may adapt depending on the time available and there are follow up activities. 

 

MSF resources for assemblies >

The resources draw on the work of MSF, to engage students with up to date humanitarian challenges, and have been guided by clearly established learning objectives for KS3 and GCSE English. They include games, real-life stories, images and videos to create a buzz in the classroom.

We currently offer four teaching and learning resources for GCSE and A Level Geography, developed in partnership with the Geographical Association and an advisory group of teachers. The resources look at the subjects of cholera, earthquakes, food security and mapping.

We currently offer resources for GCSE and A Level French and GCSE Spanish. We hope this mix of real-life stories, videos and images, will engage students and encourage discussion of wider social issues.
