The Service Committee Donation Drive
The StuELT Service Committee put together a donation drive in aid of the Dubai Foundation for Women and Children.
They asked students to 'earn their donation' by agreeing with their parents on actions that can be taken at home, or in their community, that would warrant their parents making a donation. They were encouraged to take action and build some meaning and value behind the donation.
Donations were no more than AED50. All proceeds were used to develop hampers of items that were appropriate to the needs of the foundation. Head of the Service Committee, Kiana Heidary went to the foundation and received a Certificate of Appreciation on behalf of GIS.
‘I am delighted that our Service Committee, led by students Kiana H and Jana A, has been recognised for the excellent work on behalf of the Dubai Foundation for Women and Children. I commend these girls for their persistence and thank everyone involved in raising awareness and donating to this worthy cause.’ Simon Herbert, Head of School
