188 School Backpacks until Christmas

12 June in Insights by joanna  

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.

You can make a difference in a child’s life by donating a school backpack filled with accessories. Our aim is to collect 188 school backpacks by Christmas. The school we support educates 188 children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old. In June we’ve collected 10 backpacks, in July 13, in August 44! 26 arrived in Sep – the month is not over yet! 95 more school backpacks are required.

You can 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 (not a plastic one), notepad and anything else you would like to include that feels appropriate. You can also donate your phone or laptop.

Terms and conditions:* We offer 5% discount per backpack with a max of
10% discount (school 2 backpacks) per family (2 adults and children).

Note: Please do not donate empty school backpacks and please consider the quality. It should be a water-proof quality school backpack that will last. You can drop off your backpack during your family tour directly to the child at our local school. We only need 188 family tours until Christmas!
