Students embrace tech to boost social impact projects during pandemic

Nord Anglia Education, the world’s largest premium international schools group, today released figures showing how its digital strategy has galvanised students’ community volunteering efforts during the pandemic.

From Sept 2020 to March 2021, Nord Anglia’s students successfully pivoted online to continue engaging in community-driven action focused on tackling the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Using Share A Dream, Nord Anglia’s online social engagement platform, thousands of students volunteered nearly 56,000 hours for community outreach programmes, raised US$433,000 dollars for local charities, and collected 50,000 goods for donating to community projects.

Nord Anglia Education's Share A Dream platform has grown in popularity and this year has seen a 68% increase in student users, compared to September 2019 – March 2020. The online platform facilitates community engagement, by enabling students around the world to plan, run, and crucially, track all outreach activities and evaluate the impact of their work in local communities. Designed with a social network look and feel, students use the platform to collaborate with each other to share and refine ideas, and recruit each other for causes they are passionate about.

Despite the many challenges posed by various lockdown restrictions, highlights included:

  • Students in Europe fundraising US$165,000 for 52 local charities
  • Students in India volunteering 2,000 hours, including collecting food packages to provide support to families in rural Hyderabad
  • Students in China volunteering 3,688 hours and raising money to fund life-saving heart surgery for a 17-month-old child
  • Students in Vietnam raising US$68,000 for 27 local charities
  • Students in North America and Latin America raising US$107,000 for charities including students in Ecuador who donated computers so local school children could continue to learn virtually.

Dr Elise Ecoff, Group Director of Education, for Nord Anglia Education, said: “Given all the tremendous challenges created by the pandemic, it makes our students’ efforts to help their communities even more impressive. We’re incredibly proud of their resilience and teamwork to make a difference, no matter what. With our Share A Dream platform, we’ve created a way for our students to connect, share ideas, and deliver volunteering activities to tackle the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. It’s another great example of how our digital strategy helps our students to learn and develop inside and outside of the classroom.”
