International School Grade 8 students, Nadia Kimbrough (Spanish- Mandarin tracks) and Sasha Forniss (French- Mandarin tracks), purchased school clothing and toiletries for the children at Coburn Place Safe Haven which heavily relies on community donations of furniture, household products, health and hygiene products and food.
Action and service have always been shared values of the International Baccalaureate community and have been integrated into the Middle Years Program curriculum. Students take action when they apply what they are learning in the classroom and beyond. ISI strives to instill these values in all of our students so they will be caring members of the community who demonstrate a commitment to service– making a positive difference to the lives of others.
Nadia Kimbrough takes these lessons to heart and is often seen working to improve life for others, but lately, her focus has specifically been on helping those at the Coburn Place Safe Haven whose mission it is to empower the victims of intimate partner violence to live as survivors. Proceeds from Nadia’s philanthropic inspired bake sales are being utilized to purchase clothing, health & hygiene products for children who live at the safe haven.
Both Nadia and Sasha have learned and created their business entrepreneurship niche and philanthropy at an early age while having fun doing so. We are proud that these young ladies are a part of the ISI community as they truly inspire all of us to live up to the school’s values of respect, responsibility, and effort!
