On Thursday 11 November, SSIS Service Committee hosted the annual Active for Action event on the school track. Students from Kindergarten to Grade 12, parents and families were all actively involved in a fun run or walk to raise funds to support SSIS student service groups in both Elementary and Secondary.
Last year SSIS Service Committee were able to raise an outstanding 43,282.30 RMB and were able to grant requests from Heart-to-Heart service group to fund two lifesaving surgeries for two young children from Guizhou province.
They were also able to grant money to South Africa Vastfontein project, so they could support the expenses incurred from operating the orphanage from food and supplies to staffing and maintenance costs.
Finally, a grant was also given to one of our newest service groups First Love to help build Science laboratories at the Masi Ati school in Boracay Philippines.
SSIS is committed to service as part of a vision of helping students become meaningful participants in an international community. Thank you for all your donations to helping SSIS support organizations and charities locally, nationally and internationally.
