AIS students move on to become true global citizens who understand how far the gifts of contribution, volunteerism, and engagement go in creating a better world. We are proud of the many ways our students give back to the global and local community, and we also understand that many of our student groups have been unable to organize this school year. To support our students in their efforts to make the world a better place, the AIS Administration agreed to make a financial gift this past holiday season. MS and HS student groups were invited to submit proposals for how to direct the funds, coordinated through the MS Service Learning Leaders and the HS CAS Coordinator. In the end, our team decided to donate EUR 1,250 to Zweite Gruft (the Caritas International Soup Kitchen) and EUR 1,250 to Rossauer Lände.
The team from Zweite Gruft was very grateful for our gift and sent us a certificate to thank us for our ongoing support. We are honored to be able to serve the local community through this partnership and look forward to being able to return someday soon.
