For many of us, the start of a school year is a time to reset, take stock of where we are, and get ready to approach the new experiences and challenges that the year will bring. At ISA, we have a tradition which helps us start the new year on the right foot and with a positive mindset.
Throughout August, ISA faculty and staff gathered and collected a variety of English textbooks, reading books and class materials for donation to the ISOB Foundation, a charity working to build and stock schools and libraries in Ethiopia. ISA’s commitment to empathising with others and forging strong connections with our local and global partners are deeply embedded in our culture, helping us to further our mission to educate for international understanding.
Getachew Negate, an ISOB representative, came to pick up the books, which took two car journeys! Getachew was delighted with the books collected and expressed his sincere gratitude to the ISA community for this support to schools and libraries in marginal areas of the country.
Thank you to everyone involved with this project for helping ISA to continue this longstanding tradition of contributing to a sustainable future.
