You go to make and impact on things and those around you, yet while you are doing that you do not realize the impact that it has on yourself.
- Orit, Early Childhood Educator, and past Students Crossing Borders trip participant
When Students Crossing Borders comes all the children are excited. Aunty Rima’s group not only comes to help out with beautification projects but also comes and help motivate the children and make them be more accepting of themselves. So it’s extremely important for this group to come back because we all see you guys as someone we can trust and be open with. I no longer live at MSC but I can just imagine the ear to ear smile on the children’s faces when they see the bus pull up.

You guys help to bring us back together by reinforcing the importance of brotherhood, friendship and honesty. Many times when the problems of our soundings get to us you give us a means of escape. In the program we forge new bonds with different people, with different views and beliefs, providing us with means of looking at things from a different perspective.
- Theodore, Riverton Meadows community youth leader
It’s important for Students Crossing Borders to come as the group helps to develop future leaders of less fortunate communities via their workshops. These leaders can now help to build better communities ultimately building a better society. Also coming annually ensures younger individuals coming up can benefit from the workshops offered by the group.
- Romario, Riverton Meadows community youth leader
SCB has a positive impact on the youths in the community and also provides the opportunity to work along with the youths from the other communities… There is no other programme that foster that type of interaction.
