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.
AFC Comm’Tabitha : 500,000 FCFA
CAHPA : 407,500 FCFA
Imagine le monde : 267,000 FCFA
Le Chantilly de Kouadjo : 125,000 FCFA
We would like to thank the artisans Maxange, BABO and the SOST biscuits who donated 20% of their revenues to the Associations! This sum, associated with other donors, allowed us to collect a sum of: 630,000 FCFA
With this money, we bought 250 toys for Samuel’s Christmas tree, foodstuffs (3 bags of rice of 25 kg, 3 boxes of oil of 15 bottles, 25 kg of sugar, peas, sardines , soaps, etc.), 30 kg of dry cat food and 120 kg of dry dog food.
Imagine le Monde was able to make Christmas baskets for many families, AFC Comm’Tabitha helped the orphanage Jean Emmanuella de Monga to expand with bags of cement, she distributed food and school materials and Samuel made a Christmas tree for 275 children in the Songon camps.
Thank you all for your participation in this great Christmas sharing.Anam Hassan – Ivory Montessori School’s director
