SAF SCHOOLS PRIZE 2016
an event combining children’s passion for art with the worthy cause of helping local orphans.
The exhibition was open to public where students’ artworks were displayed for sale. All proceeds from the sale and sponsorship fees went directly to The Royal Charity Organization (RCO) to cover education and healthcare of over 5,000 orphans in Bahrain.
The event was a major success, raising over BHD 270,500 (GBP495,475) for this purpose.
This joint effort by SAF and RCO, now in its third year, is part of a global initiative that highlights the importance of art within the education system.
G4S Bahrain sponsored both cash and security services during the exhibition in April attended by over 600 guests from various schools, media and corporate bodies.
