TRIXS Fundraiser November 2015

City Shine students are extremely happy with the lab equipment we bought them!
Without your continued support we would not have be able to have accomplished this.

Thank you so much!

Purchasing this equipment was the last step we had to do for the school to be a certified Exam Centre!
Before this, the students had to travel to another location for their exams.
This brought even more financial stress to some families and these students were not able to get to the location which meant they would miss out on their exams.
This is now one less thing for them to worry about.

We, at City Shine, want to wish the students good luck on their up coming exams!!

Lab Equipment

Dear City Shine supporters, due to the Syrian refugee situation, we at City Shine Foundation feel the need to help out by donating some of the clothes that have been donated by some amazing people. Today, we’ll be dropping off some of the clothing/blankets at the Moskee Anware Mustafa in The Hague.

Transparency is a big thing for us so we would like to keep you informed on our decisions. We thank you for your understanding!

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns regarding our decision.

Asante sana!

City Shine Foundation doesn’t give money to the community.
Instead, we provide a safe place to go to school and all necessary educational materials so the students can educate themselves and work towards a better future for themselves and their families!

On January 18, 2014, singers, musicians and actors took the stage at the annual student-run show Night to Remember held at ASH. Night to Remember has become a tradition at ASH and every year the ASH community sees an improvement in the quality of the acts and the professionalism of the students involved. Featuring a variety of acts ranging from solo singers to dancers, the show had the audience hooked from the very first act. Needless to say, tickets were quickly sold raising almost €2100.

Additional money was raised at the event itself from the bake sale and from selling Kenyan souvenirs with brought the total amount raised to €2505 !!

To get an impression from this night, please see the pictures below or watch the videos on YouTube.
