Let’s start with the surprise: Vittoria High School has decided to assign to the best students of the second last year, both for the traditional high school and the IB Program a bursary in order to visit in summer 2019 the school-hostel Msolva Ujamaa in Tanzania, which received the donations of the Christmas market organized by Vittoria for the non-profit organization “Find the Cure”. This is what, the principal, Mrs Marcella Bodo announced this morning during the ceremony, highlighting with pride the great work done by our students, who successfully organized the Christmas market, “Find the Cure”. Since 2006, this project has invested the money collected in building new schools, orphanages, dispensaries, wells, refectories and it has been supporting programs connected with education and health in India, Central America and most of all, Africa.
Two voluntary workers from the organization, Ms Esther Ruggiero and Ms Emanuela Pagano, showed us photos of the children of Msolva Ujamaa who, also thanks to our students’ help, will be able to attend school and live in one of the hostels. They also read for us the touching words of some of the voluntary workers of “Find the Cure” about working with the children.
The students’ representative council handed the money and received the applause of the teachers and schoolmates for their wonderful work of coordination.
Surely the most beautiful and touching moment of the whole event, were the words spoken by Martina and Matteo, who reminded everyone present about the importance of enjoying what one has without complaining all the time, always keeping in mind people’s sufferings and misery and trying to help, not just with words but with facts.
