Visit Of American International School

Our Fleury with the host students

On the 23rd February, some of our young scholars were invited to the American International School in Pretoria, to share their experiences with their peers, on life as a refugee. The American school caters for children of diplomats, so it was a very enriching experience, meeting young people from all over the world, and who, of course, lead a very different life from our young refugees. Our hosts were so open to learning about life on the other side of the line. Then the next week, they paid a reciprocal visit to Mercy House, where they could see where we live and meet more of our young people. We thank our co-worker, Nozizwe Ndebele, who works at the school and arranged the whole enriching exercise. The photo shows our Fleury with the host students at the American International School when we visited them.
