181 School Backpacks until Christmas

12 June in Insights by joanna  

You can make a difference in a child’s life by donating a school backpack filled with accessories. Our aim is to collect 181 school backpacks by Christmas. The school we support educates 181 children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old. In June we’ve collected 10 backpacks so only 171 to go!

For some children in the village, receiving a school backpack is the only new thing they have ever had and it makes such a difference to their lives.

Purchase a backpack and fill it with school items as listed below:

Toothbrush, toothpaste, ruler, eraser, pencil case, lead pencils, highlighter, glue stick, lunch box, water bottle, notepad and anything else you would like to include that feels appropriate. You can also donate your phone or laptop.

Please avoid purchasing branded school backpacks. Majority of students are not athletes and not attracted to typical western brands like adidas or nike. We are also concerned about their supply-chain transparency and prefer for guests to purchase products that don’t feature a particular brand.

You can drop off your backpack during your family tour directly to the child at our local school. We only need 181 family tours until Christmas!
