Asia Metropolitan International School (AMETIS), Ipoh places emphasis on developing learners who excel academically, are competent socially and are global citizens.
The school’s outreach programmes are held locally. In 2015 it was done in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
This year the AMETIS team, consisting of 14 learners, five staff members and two volunteers, conducted its programme, for the second year running, in Don Bosco Sneha Bhavan from June 22 to 27.
Don Bosco Sneha Bhavan is a registered charity based in Kerala, India. The organisation helps children at risk: street children and youth, child labourers, child beggars, lost children, children in conflict with the law, abused children, abandoned children, runaways and children from dysfunctional family environments.
The team spent time at one of the centres for boys aged between 11 and 14. They organised games, sing-along sessions, painting and colouring.
Thanks to generous donations from parents and friends of AMETIS, the team was able to provide gifts, stationery, foodstuffs, toiletries and multivitamins to the unfortunate kids. The team donated INR75,000 (RM5025) to the charity.
Members of the team had benefited from the opportunity and, in doing so, had gained many invaluable experiences.
