QSI students set up library room at Eden

Students in the secondary IB class at QSI International School of Shekou participated in a service project to help support the children at Project Eden.  The major emphasis of the project was to add on to QSI’s earlier project of creating a recreation room for the children at the home.  This time, students designed a library room adjacent to the activity room, they planned and organized many fundraisers in order to buy supplies for their project and went to visit Eden to carry out the makeover.  They spent the day painting, assembling furniture, and setting up the room. They even had the opportunity to work with the children at Eden, tutoring them in math and English.  The QSI students were also able to provide books, food, and sandals for all of the children at the home, and while there, the group enjoyed hiking through the countryside with some of the girls from the home.  While the QSI students were happy to give their time and effort to help the children at Project Eden, they also benefited greatly from the opportunity to get involved and to see their plans come together.  The students went home messy, with paint in their hair and mud on their shoes, but with smiles on their faces, having gotten the chance to help out the students at Project Eden. We want to say a huge thank-you to all the students involved in this project. Now the Eden children have a lovely bright room for study, reading and quiet time, all brought about by the kindness of the QSI students and their teachers.
