A heartfelt congratulations to all Grade 8 students who worked so hard to prepare for the Winter Market and then braved the cold to sell their merchandise featuring delicious treats, handcrafts and games…
We expect students to make significant contributions to the community through our Service as Action and Community Service programmes. Some of these go beyond the campus of MIS. Our outreach programmes with UNICEF and Tanzania are two important examples of our commitment to global mindedness.
In the summer of 1990, under the leadership of the Headmaster at the time, Lister Hannah, MIS students Jesse Garcia and Nickie Shaver travelled to Tanzania with teachers Carol Geiger and Mark McGough to establish a helping relationship with the people of Tanzania.
This relationship has evolved since that first visit into a significant component of the MIS Community outreach. A team of approximately 20-25 students and staff travel to Tanzania each year at the beginning of the summer vacation to visit the projects which MIS supports and to undertake service projects there. The trips in 2020 and 2021 were cancelled because of the CO-VID 19 global pandemic.
We support projects which directly benefit individuals or groups of individuals in need and have the following purposes:
We support projects which advance the education of needy children and the further education of needy young adults in Tanzania by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities and resources and the payment of tuition fees.
We support projects which advance the health of needy people in Tanzania by helping people to maintain or improve their physical and mental health, by preventing or curing ill-health and disease, and by providing medical equipment and facilities to promote health and emotional and social well-being and to relieve pain and suffering of the needy.
3. Poverty and Hardship
We support projects which seek to relieve poverty and hardship by providing food, goods and services to needy people In Tanzania. We support projects which support those needy members of communities, particularly women, who are responsible and carry most of the financial and social burden for those communities.
4. Social Welfare
We support projects which provide recreational and leisure time activities for needy people in Tanzania designed to improve the quality of life of those in need.
We are so excited to finally share that after a long gap due to Covid, in July 2022, a group of 25 Senior School students and four chaperones were able to make the service trip to Moshi, Tanzania…
We are delighted to report that, after various delays due to Covid, the first phase of work has now begun on the construction of a pre-school with toilet and kitchen facilities in Milaweni village, near Moshi in Tanzania.
