2013. A new school year at SAS. New faces. New surroundings. Overwhelmed by the registration activities, pre-school activities, and meetings with the Field Team, our new SAS Ai scholars move about in a daze. Our returning scholars move with more ease and purpose. Exciting and at the same time emotionally draining, our “newbies” go through the day’s registration activities.
Certainly a highlight of registration day covers the fitting of school uniforms. T-Shirt and Pants for the boys, a blouse and a skirt for the girls. A pair of rubber shoes and socks for the boys and a pair of patent leather shoes and socks for the girls. For most of our scholars, if not all, life hasn’t been very giving. These kids live in austere, spartan surroundings. This would be the first time they would actually enjoy trying on new clothes and shoes – quite a thrill for all of them.
Foremost in our minds are our generous donors, contributors to our scholarship fund, without whose support and charitable actions, our goal and mission would not be in place for these bright kids. We take this time to thank all our supporters and contributors. Please continue to send in your donations to the scholarship fund.
Our Field Team facilitates and handles the registration activities making sure all our scholars receive proper attention. This makes for a long day for our Field Team members.
