Acting Locally and connecting Globally

As the world become a small global village, we have been able to connect with people from around the world.  During our 2018 Humanitarian mission to Nepal, we delivered Branchburg’a  Stony Brook students’ messages to students in Nepal. THANK YOU Stony Brook School’s Student Leadership Teams for your thoughtful messages of “HOPE” to your peers in Nepal. The Asha

During 2018 Humanitarian Mission to Nepal our students from the  Stony Brook School’s 4th and 5th grade Leadership Councils participated in an outreach project called “ACTING LOCALLY and CONNECTING GLOBALLY” to support and inspire students from Nepal.

Students supported 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 were distributed to students in Nepal to hang in newly constructed schools. The Leadership Councils also organized a school supply drive.
The decorated box, filled with over 100 flags and school supplies.

If any schools like to implement similar project, please let us know. You can contact us at
