Compassion, being one of CAC's core values, is one of the most important values our school is constantly looking to instill and develop in our students starting at a very young age. Our Service Learning Office facilitates relationships and communication with external parties like charities, orphanages, hospitals and various NGOs.
Here is a glimpse of some of the very rewarding projects that we have been working on since the beginning of the school year across the three divisions:
Elementary School: This year, the CAC PTO decided to support Abu Al Reesh Public Children Hospital. This project is meant to be an ongoing collaboration with the hospital, making it the PTO’s champion for the year. Working together with our Service Learning Coordinator, a team of students volunteered to pave the way for making the Children’s Hospital the main recipient of CAC donations.
Right before our winter break and Christmas vacation, our younger students were successful in collecting and packing 445 Christmas gift bags for their friends at the hospital. These bags consisted of toys that were donated by all the divisions across the school. The best part of this specific project was the extra effort our students put into personally customizing each bag by leaving messages and decorating each one. We are so proud of our younger students for sharing the Christmas joy with their friends in the hospital.
Middle School: Our middle schoolers also did a very impressive job raising funds through games and competitions between the different clubs in the Middle School. These funds were used to buy essentials for the African Hope Foundation. CAC has had a long term relationship with the African Learning Center, which is meant to provide education and support African refugees in Egypt. These supplies were prepared by our wonderful volunteers and delivered to African Hope Foundation.
High School: Our older high schoolers did their part as well. They did an amazing job raising enough funds to cover the school education of two students in collaboration with Educate Me Foundation. These funds were in fact raised by a HS project through an annual alumni grant. Educate Me operates a community school in Talbeya, Giza and runs training and development programs for both public school teachers and students across a number of governorates.
Our students continue to make us proud as they pour their hearts into giving back to their community, and being proud representatives of our own CAC community.
