Members of Stony Brook School’s 4th and 5th grade Leadership Councils participated in an outreach project spanning across the globe. Supporting the Branchburg Rotary’s ASHA Project, an initiative that “provide(s) HOPE in all aspects of life by supporting initiatives that are run by the people of Nepal for the people of Nepal”, the leadership members spearheaded the “Flags of Hope” project in which they led their classmates in creating flags that sent messages of hope to their peers in Nepal. On the flags were written the word “ASHA” (which means “HOPE” in Nepali) and words of encouragement. These flags will hang in newly constructed homes and schools. The Leadership Councils also organized a school supply drive. The decorated box, filled with over 100 flags and school supplies will travel with Branchburg Rotary President, Dr. Maharjan in February on the group’s humanitarian mission to Nepal. We are so excited to support the Branchburg Rotary in this wonderful endeavor!
