FOREST PARK (FOX19) -- A recent trip to Matthew 25: Ministries showed Guilli Dia, a freshman in the Academy of Global Studies at Winton Woods High School, that when you help others “you change two people’s lives, yours and the other person’s.”
Dia visited the Blue Ash humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization along with 90 other students from AGS. She said she came away from the three-hour experience with the desire to create her own non-profit organization “because it impacted me when I saw people who needed help.”
While at Matthew 25, the students toured the facility’s Global Village, an interactive opportunity to see and understand the living conditions in needy areas in the United States and around the world. They also worked in the Fill Center, putting liquid soap into larger containers for places like Haiti, where they will be used until empty and then re-used as water containers.
