In the month of May, clothing closets were again diligently raided this year and, in accordance with the motto "Alles neu macht Mai" (loosely: "May makes everything new"), clothing and toys were collected for a good cause.
On June 23, a large number of boxes were handed over to the Virlanie Foundation based in Makati.
The Virlanie Foundatio is a non-profit, non-denominational organization founded in 1992 by the Frenchman Dominique Lemay. It supports street children in Manila and runs eight houses to give the children a home and provides for their school education. The handover of the donations was a good opportunity to put into practice two core values of GESM as a UNESCO school: Sustainability and Social Commitment!
In the coming school year, we want to expand our cooperation with regard to "inclusion" - another focus of GESM. We are excited and looking forward to the collaboration.
See you next time in May 2024!
