Nord Anglia Education (NAE), the world’s leading premium schools group, today published the impact report for its Share a Dream outreach charitable activities. During the 2018-19 academic year more than US$650,000 was raised by students, teachers and staff at NAE schools as part of ongoing philanthropy efforts across the organisation. In addition, 76,000 volunteering hours for good causes were recorded.
Share a Dream encourages students to give back to communities as part of their education. The Share a Dream online platform equips students, teachers and staff with a host of fundraising and volunteering tools to support communities across the world. Using the platform, NAE schools plan, execute and report on the ways they are affecting change.
Andrew Fitzmaurice, Chief Executive Officer, Nord Anglia Education, said: “Our students are tomorrow’s change makers and we believe in nurturing the skills and creativity they need to make a difference in the world.”
Students at La Côte International School worked closely with Medair Switzerland and 1001 Fontaines to fundraise for a number of projects in 2018-2019, including gathering all students together in our playing field to design a giant water drop on World Water Day, 22nd of March 2019.
