Winners of the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) “Best Project” Prize
We are proud of our students Jan Nicole Yao; Tendresse Elepo; Mark Mohv; and Ben Klausen who have won the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Témoignage Prize for “best project in Aust-Agder”, and a place in the national finals for AIS.
Every year MSF has a school project where schools compete to spread information to as many people as possible about a forgotten crisis or a forgotten progress in our World. AIS has been a part of this competition as ‘Service as Action’ for three years and have won all three years in a row.
The group spread information about the forgotten progress on the eradication of Kala-Azar. Kala-Azar is the parasitic disease that kills the most people in the world after Malaria but is on its way to become extinct in the high-risk countries of Nepal, Bangladesh and India.
Inspired by the ‘ALS Ice Bucket Challenge’, here is some of what the group created in order to spread knowlege:
“The more people know, the less people die – MSF”.
The jury’s verdict:
