School Transport Services (STS) has launched the ‘Stuff the Bus with Kindness’ campaign during the Holy Month of Ramadan and to coincide with the Year of Tolerance marked by the UAE in 2019.
As part of the campaign, 100 students of 100 different nationalities from GEMS Founders School Al Barsha are encouraged to adopt an act of kindness which they will write down on a leaf. The STS school bus will be stuffed with all these 'kindness leaves' that will be used to make a formation of the logo of the ‘Year of Tolerance’ on a 3m x 3 me area, which will then be positioned in the bus during the month.
To keep the momentum going throughout Ramadan, STS will inspire students to be super kind by doing good actions and to collect items for donation. This bus will travel to over 82 schools in the UAE during Ramadan and students and parents are encouraged to donate school items and supplies to be donated to Emirates Red Crescent.
Further, students from several schools across the UAE are making a formation of the logo of the ‘Year of Tolerance’ – the Ghaf tree, a symbol of giving and coexistence – using school supplies collected from 82 schools in the region.
The month-long campaign centres around bringing together students of over 104 nationalities living in the UAE to support those in need.
