“Running to Stop the Traffik”, organized by the youth endurance network, is a 24-hour race led entirely by our high school students. The main goal of the event is to raise awareness for human trafficking as well as raising a goal of $500,000 for “The Ester Benjamin’s Trust” which is a charitable organization that rescues and rehabilitates victims of human trafficking in Northern India and Nepal. These victims are girls between the ages of 8-12 and have had their innocence taken away from them: there is no way to completely understand their situation.
Each school is to raise a minimum of $38,000 for the event. AIS is one of 15 international schools that have voluntarily taken initiative in helping the youth endurance network and supporting their cause. Students throughout high school have set up various fundraising events to raise money and awareness; events like bake sales and movie nights push students to create reality from ideas, shaping the leaders of the future.
Look for their booth at the AIS-PTA Cultural Fair. Our 36 runners are looking forward to the upcoming race which is taking place on the 26th – 27th of November at Lugard Road and we wish them the best of luck.
