PARAMARIBO - Two junior high students who were selected last year for a one-year stay and study program in the USA, have participated in training in Indonesia last month. Samantha Bansi and Jason Arjoon, both 17, attended leadership training, lessons in starting community projects and training skills.
... Bansi and Arjoon stayed in the US from August 2011 to July 2012, and started projects in their communities after their return. Arjoon has started a recycling project to make his community more aware about the environment and the benefits of recycling, while Bansi has focused her project on women, teaching English five days a week to 24 female drop-outs between 19 and 45. They want to develop their projects further with the knowledge gained in Indonesia.
