ISKL nurtures and practices a culture of care and empathy to influence our learners to support and evaluate different perspectives while considering the impact of their actions on those around them. Our long-standing commitment to the community and the world has been embedded into the school’s curriculum and traditions.
From an inclusive educational support system to involvement with after-school activities or weekly service learning projects, students from Early Childhood through to High School are constantly inspired to give back through organizing fundraising campaigns, advocating for causes, or participating in random acts of kindness.
As a nonprofit, parent-owned school whose only shareholders are our students and to meet ISKL’s vision of caring for others and creating a better world, on November 29, 2022 we embarked on our first GivingTuesday initiative. On this day, we hoped that these numerous deeds of altruism and philanthropy would have a ripple effect and create more acts of giving to positively impact those within our local communities and beyond.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement or day of giving where people and organizations take the opportunity to give back to their communities and the world. It provides a platform for nonprofits to raise more money for charitable causes than they would on an average day of giving and encourages people to give back in whatever way they can.
Since this initiative started in 2012, this collective idea of giving has gained traction with a large following, unleashing various charitable efforts, from organizing local food drives to making donations supporting initiatives worldwide.
There are many ways to give, be it through supporting people in need, performing random acts of kindness, volunteering, making donations or inspiring others to take action for a better world in our ISKL community and beyond. You can be a part of Giving Tuesday 2023. It will take place on November 28, 2023, and we have exciting plans to involve more members of our community in participating in acts of kindness as well as raising money. Check here for more details at the start of the 2023-2024 school year.
