Community Outreach Programs
Environmental Project: Each year students plant fruit bearing trees
in one of the neighboring communities to help preserve and restore
the local environment. During the project, students learn about plants
and how to care for them. Residents of the community also benefit
from the project by receiving an additional source of income from
the gathered fruit.
Medical Project: Each year students learn about one major health
concern affecting their community and are taught about disease prevention
and healthy living practices from medical professionals. Residents
of the community benefit from the project by receiving health education
and free immunizations or other medical assistance.
Environmental Projects in Review
Annakili Kotta, a small village five kilometers from the school,

initial installation took about a month and many students will
to visit the village to assist in taking care of the saplings
they are established.
Medical Projects in Review
As three field workers had died from Hepatitis B during the year,
