At ELS we aim to teach for life beyond academics. For this reason, charity and community service are a cornerstone in raising students to become responsible citizens.
Through organized charity and community service programs our students’ learning includes but is not limited to
– project management
– decision making
– critical thinking and reasoning
– public speaking and presentation skills
This is of course in addition to instilling the core sense of responsibility for those less fortunate than themselves in the community.
Each of the ELS campaigns is student run and guided by mentor teachers and staff.
The following are the 5 ELS campaigns for the 2017-18 academic year.
1) Donate to Educate (November)
This campaign aims to raise money for governmental students in the surrounding area to pay to sit for government exams.
2) Hospital Donation (October – March)
Students literally work to raise money for this campaign. Via a weekly school canteen and an organized Garage Sale students plan, fundraiser for, and produce their own play. Additionally grade 9 students organize an annual themed carnival. All profit from the plays and carnival are donated 100% to the hospital chosen.
3) Orphan Drive (February – April)
The ELS community donates new toys, clothes, and packed food to various local needing orphanages. Students help to organize, package and deliver the donations.
4) Kolena Mesa7araty (February – May)
This is a grand scale Ramadan bag campaign that targets specific rural areas. Students collect donations, buy items in bulk, and the entire school community helps pack and distribute the bags.
5) Dolab El Kheir (April)
Through this campaign ELSians remember the less fortunate by collecting quality second hand clothing for distribution before Eid. Students help organize and package the clothing donations.
Note the timeline of the projects above and mark them on you calendars. Together, the ELS community can make a tremendous change.

Dear Parents ,
As they say there is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up. This is why our school ELS is taking the lead and contributing in several social programs helping the community. Let us state with pride that this year we will continue with a project we started last year ‘Donate to Educate’. We managed to help students belonging to the governmental schools who were unable to pay their tuition fees. So, we humbly take it as our mission to help those needy children and bring them to the main stream life.
For this purpose we request you to kindly join hands with us both monetarily and morally, and let us make this program a success. So please, let us all speak the same language and encourage your children to donate even part of their pocket money. This way they will learn the real meaning of giving back to their community.
“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you”
Please send your donations in a closed envelope titled Donate to Educate, with your child’s name to the English teacher.
