ssis-suzhou-charity-fair-3On Friday, 18 October the Suzhou Singapore International School (SSIS) Roots and Shoots chapter hosted the third annual Charity & Fair Trade Expo on campus. This year 18 local and international groups attended the Expo, including Heart to Heart Shanghai, Morning Tears and South Africa Vastfontein Project.

“The Expo is an opportunity for local and regional organizations to network and promote their causes and make connections with students, parents and the wider community,” said Allison Parratt, SSIS CAS Coordinator and Expo organizer. “It creates opportunities for students and the community to learn about local and regional organizations for which they can volunteer, initiate projects, and fundraise. We want students to gain an understanding of how these organizations play an important role in improving our community.”

As the founder of the Roots and Shoots organization, Dr Jane Goodall says, “Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference.” SSIS wants to inspire every student, and the wider community, to make a difference by hosting the Charity & Fair Trade Expo event.
