BISS announced today its students have received funding from Nord Anglia’s community investment fund to support student-led social impact project, PAWS.

This is one of 23 grants across Nord Anglia selected to receive a Social Impact Grant from Nord Anglia Education’s funding pool, which now cumulatively totals an investment of US$621,753 across 44 student-run projects from Nord Anglia’s 87 international schools.

With investment from Nord Anglia’s Social Impact Grants, BISS students will use the funding to expand and enhance community activities while aiming to address the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Through its collaboration with UNICEF, Nord Anglia Education is committed to helping to make a global impact on these goals before the 2030 deadline.

Dr Leslie Williams, Senior Programme Lead for Social Impact and Giving at Nord Anglia, said: "As well as taking initiative to make change in their communities, these grants are about learning valuable skills that have real-world impact. Whether that’s budgeting supplies or balancing schoolwork with their projects, these are the skills that can set up our students for real future success.”

Nord Anglia’s Student Advisory Board, a group made up of student representatives from across its 87 schools, review each funding application to ensure students’ voices are heard during the approval process. Proposals are then evaluated by Nord Anglia’s Grants Committee, which includes members of the Education Advisory Board, as well as Nord Anglia Principals and teachers.
