Supports ISA Student Initiatives                                

The ISA student community has a long-standing commitment to social justice and SHARE has been active in ensuring continued student involvement in various initiatives through SHARE's matching funds programme. The three main and long-standing charities that SHARE currently supports are the Tanzania Girls Project, Habitat for Humanity and Heifer Nederland. 

Tanzania Girls

Since 1995, ISA has been actively involved in an aid programme in Monduli, Tanzania, supporting a school for girls mainly from the Maasai tribe. Traditionally, Maasai girls receive a very basic elementary education at best and this programme offers the opportunity for girls to have a secondary education. Every two years ISA staff and students run an 18-day summer educational programme for the school. Student fundraising throughout the year raises money to purchase supplies for the programme and the school as well as to fund two field trips for the school students. An extra donation is made to the school each year, to be used according to its current needs. Find out more...

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit, Christian organization that seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action worldwide.  Habitat has built and renovated more than 500,000 homes around the world, providing more than 2.5 million people with safe, decent, affordable shelter. Over the past several years, ISA students have participated in projects in India and Romania and for 2015 will venture to Kyrgyzstan, to help building homes for the people in need. Find out more...

Heifer Nederland

Heifer helps people in developing countries to build independent lives by providing them animals and training. Animals give the families healthy food and the ability to sell to the market the products that are not consumed by them (such as milk or eggs). Since 1999, Heifer Nederland has helped more than 19,000 families in 13 African and Eastern European countries with animals, training, vaccinations and micro-credit. ISA students fundraise and deliver funds to Heifer projects in Tanzania and beyond. 

Refugee Relief - Special Project 2015-2016

In 2015-16, SHARE worked in collaboration with local foundation Vluchtelingenwerk Amstelland to identify opportunities where our community can assist incoming refugee families.
