AIS West Earthquake Relief Efforts




Together, we raised EGP 112,587 for Earthquake Relief Efforts in Collaboration with the Egyptian Red Crescent

Our school community’s generous support of our recent Earthquake Donation Drive in collaboration with the Egyptian Red Crescent (ERC) has raised EGP 112,587. This includes direct contributions to the ERC by parents and staff members. We are so proud of our National Honor Society (NHS) and High School Student Council students, whose fundraising initiatives alone collected donations totaling EGP 35,335. We would also like to thank the ERC volunteers who were available at our school for one week to talk to our students, raise awareness about the relief efforts and accept direct donations. While no amount of money can erase the pain of this tragedy, every single donation will lighten the impact left on the victims and their families.

At AIS West, we aim to foster a strong sense of social consciousness among our students, empowering them to learn how individuals can also make a difference. Supported by our leadership and teachers, our students regularly organize and participate in several donation drives and other service learning and community service initiatives. Our student-led projects support cancer research, various animal shelters in Cairo, underprivileged schools, or hospitals such as the 57357 hospital.

Well done AIS West!

Grade 2 and KG2 Winter Holiday Family Event

Our parents were invited to attend the Grade 2 and KG2 Winter Holiday Family Event. They played outdoor games, sang Arabic songs, made Christmas ornaments with their children, and our little ones made and wrote a letter to Santa. 🧑‍🎄
Grade 2 students also enjoyed being scientists and made a lot of experiments with their parents at the lab with Ms. Stephanie.

High School Students Visit 57357 Cancer Hospital

Last month, AIS National Honor Society visited the 57357 Children’s Cancer Hospital as part of their group service project.

Students learned about the treatment of patients, the hospital’s history, how the hospital is funded, and what the hospital does to support its patients emotionally in addition to the treatment they receive.

Students participated in the 57357 "Art Therapy" program, where they socialized with patients of different ages. They created artwork, played games, read stories, and built lasting memories.

Students have been fundraising to purchase a chemotherapy pump for the hospital. We are halfway to our donation goal!
