Our school is very sensitive to the community that surrounds us. Volunteering and sharing are values we cherish.
When the holiday season approaches, we support projects that help children in need.
As a team, we are committed to giving back to the local community all that we have received as knowledge.
At IMS, the holiday season is a great opportunity to reactivate the values of generosity and sharing within our large family. Thus, throughout the month of December, we offer families who wish to live this moment of sharing with us, to drop off at school a toy / a book / a dress or non-perishable foodstuffs to fill Santa’s basket.
We go through 3 associations to redistribute everything we manage to bring together (an association which offers a Christmas tree in a poor neighborhood, an association of women artisans and the Animal Protection Committee (C.P.A.)
In addition to the collection of donations, our premises are transformed into a large Christmas market with a thousand colors under the enchanted eyes of young and old.
We have a number of local artisans grouped together in association that we support and who make wonderful items. So parents and staff get their Christmas presents at school. Associations drop off their articles at school and all sales proceeds are donated to the Association.
Once again our Christmas market was a great success. It ended with a raise of 1.200.000 FCFA entirely given to the associations. On their behalf, we say a big thank you. Your generosity has put a smile on many faces.
The Maria Montessori Association of Ivory Coast, which participated for the first time in our Christmas market, has developed a range for babies and practical life trays:
You can get all these articles at any time of the year on order
Every year during this holiday season, at IMS we distribute toys, food items and hygiene products collected from parents to share with children in need.
This year we have chosen to help an elementary school in the village of M’Puto here in Abidjan. We have chosen to involve the children of the elementary class in this beautiful charity action. Thus, they, on behalf of all of us, will be the ones to give the gifts to the children of CP1.
We thank you for your participation in this year’s Christmas Market! Your generosity put smiles on your faces as you will see in the photos!
