At the end of January, Danish students from Odsherreds Efterskole Highschool had the opportunity to visit ASRI for a week as a study tour destination. Their visit was a chance to collaborate with ASRI Kids and ASRI Teens. On their first day at ASRI, the students took a tour around ASRI’s facilities and clinic to teach them more about the programs offered there.
After getting oriented, the students got to work! They compared and contrasted the differences between the waste management system in Denmark to the system used by ASRI Teens. ASRI students learned that the Danish system uses heat from burning non-recyclable waste and turns it into electricity. In order to avoid air pollution, they filter the smoke from the power plants.
They then had the opportunity to take part in reducing pollution. All of the students traveled to the beach for a clean up!
Throughout their visit, ASRI Teens were able to teach the Danish students about some of ASRI’s leading programs: the Chainsaw Buyback Program, organic farming, Goats for Widows, and the ASRI reforestation program. They also visited the Gunung Palung National Park together.
At the end of their trip, ASRI students teamed up with the Danish students to redecorate the ASRI Youth Center. Because of this, ASRI now has its own room just for youth activities!
Would you like your school to do a study tour at ASRI? They will welcome you with open arms!
