    Expat youth are in a unique position to experience different cultures and ways of living. Clements Worldwide, a leading provider of insurance solutions to expats and organizations operating globally, including international schools since 1947, is proud to announce the 10th anniversary edition of the Expat Youth Scholarship. Young people educated abroad have the ability to be the inter-cultural ambassadors of tomorrow whether they choose a career in business, humanitarian aid, or government. And with more conflict than ever before, these young people can play a huge role in bridging cultural gaps and encouraging peace.

    The Expat Youth Scholarship offers students living outside of their home countries the opportunity to share their experiences and how they try to make an impact. The challenge for eligible expat youth is to submit any chosen visual representation (photo, video, drawing, etc.) answering the question: What piece of local community/culture has most impacted your life in such a way that you will always carry it with you, regardless of your geographic location?

    The Expat Youth Scholarship uses social media platforms for both the submission and voting, engaging the expat community around the world. Expat students can apply by visiting the Expat Youth Scholarship Facebook to see eligibility requirements and submit their entry. Schools can download a poster to distribute to their students or hang up in hallways at under the Resources tab.

    After the entry period the scholarship will go into the voting period. Family and friends are encouraged to participate by visiting the EYS Facebook page to view the entries and vote for their favorite. There will be two phases to help select the finalists and winners – a popular vote to select the finalists, and an internal judging process to determine the winners from the finalists. Winners will be announced May 23rd.

    We’re looking forward to inspiring entries to see how the expat youth is already taking the world by storm!

    The year 12 Brookhouse International School community service project was undertaken at Illbisil Primary school in Kajiado, Kenya.

    It was 9 days of service which was to give us enough time to socialize with the students from Illbisil as well as to complete the six projects that we, as a year group, had set ourselves:

    • Girls Dormitory
    • Boys Dormitory
    • Classroom refurbishment
    • Playground
    • Murals
    • Furniture Making/Carpentry

    In order to complete these projects many new skills had to be learned, including; painting, pouring concrete, tiling, fitting windows, designing murals, and making furniture. There seemed to more work than people to do it, but with planning and determination, we knew we could achieve our tasks.

    Furniture Making taught us all a real lesson as we realized how hard it is to repair the desks and benches we use on a daily basis. This made us reflect on our old ways and how we, as students, often misuse our property because we know it will be repaired by others. Lesson learnt!

    The Kajiado Project was the Grand Prize winner of AISA's Outstanding Service Project in 2014/15

    Every day we worked from 7:30am until 4:30pm, earlier if you had kitchen duty, then your day began at 6am. Every evening we had time to bond and interact with each other and with the students at Illbisil.

    This was more than just a community service project to me, it was more than just nine days of hard work to help improve the school facilities. This trip was life changing.

    A major lesson that we leant was to be grateful. When we asked the children of Illbisil why they were at school, many responded that is was, “just to get a meal.” This made us reflect on our own lives and realize that many of our problems are not so serious. I was challenged about how much I complain when I haven’t had the daily struggles of the students in Kajiado.

    Working on these projects also made us appreciative of different skills people have, especially ones in manual labor because it’s hard work and in the past we had probably brushed it off as ‘easy.’

    The one question I constantly ask myself is how one short project can change the way you view things, the relationships you have with your peers by seeing who they really are outside of that school uniform, and most importantly how you can learn lessons about life that you can’t extract from a textbook?

    On arrival, probably everybody wanted to leave for home, but on the 9th day after saying good bye for 4 hours, it seemed like that was our home and departing became the hardest thing for us to do.

    AISA is delighted to announce the winner of this year's AISA Service Award for Outstanding Service Project - Teen Girls Organisation (T Go) Career Fair by the International School of Tanganyika (IST).

    The T Go Career Fair is a student-initiated project with the intent of inspiring teen Tanzanian girls to pursue non-traditional career paths. Tanzanian girls from a multitude of schools across Dar es Salaam were able to meet and interact with Tanzanian women who have pursued a range of 'unconventional' careers, educating and inspiring young women that following their own dreams and interests is possible


    There was a line-up of impressive female professionals at the event, speaking to participants, answering their questions and giving them an insight into their careers. Vicky Ntetema, Anita Urasa Jacqueline Abebe, Miranda Naiman and Sophia Mwasikili, the captain of the female national football team were amongst them. To find out more about the women leaders who presented at T Go see the booklet produced for the event here.

    The event was a huge success and will hopefully go on to become an annual event.
