Uplifting disadvantaged learners

Deeya Bheeroo

Ecole Pere Henri Souchron: Oasis de Paix School accommodates 250 students who have dropped out of the traditional educational system.

About 30 Volunteers from Aspen Global spent some time at the school engaging with the children in activities such floral art, woodwork, baking cupcakes and painting. The learners did a presentation on Nelson Mandela and some painted beautiful works of art that were bought by the Aspen team.

AGI sponsored the extension of an outdoor shelter assembly and other activities can be hosted and staff raised sufficient funds to ensure that the children receive a meal for the final semester of the year. The learners also received food, drinks and snacks and 75 children from the local were also treated to a sumptuous lunch.
