How do get students with nothing to do stay busy during summer? Simple. Send them to a summer community activity.

Taiwan’s Technical Mission teamed up with Taiwan Health Center and the Public School System to deliver a joint horticulture-nutrition-health activity at Marshall Islands High School July 28.

A total of 51 students from elementary and secondary schools took part in this event which consisted of four booths that had two or three instructors adult and high school students from Majuro Baptist Christian Academy and MIHS talking about diabetes, preparation of veggies to make a balanced meal with sandwiches, and the economic benefits of agriculture.
