Sudanese Saturday School
Sasha Odoi is the former co-coordinator of the Sudanese Saturday School, a voluntary position Sasha held for many years. Sasha’s passion and dedication for the children and families in the program earned her the respect of volunteers and participants alike. Although the program was originally formed in order to offer basic maths and literacy support, under Sasha’s guidance, it grew to become so much more. Sasha ensured every child’s birthday was celebrated with a cake and candles- a tradition new to many of them. She also organised additional activities such as a dental health morning, an excursion to Melbourne Zoo and a Christmas picnic for 80 people! Sasha’s kindness, organisation skills and willingness to help others will be greatly missed by the Sudanese Saturday School.
