Giving a School Entry Backpack helps children access school through providing the basics their families can not afford.


We come across many children in need of support to access school. The school backpacks are given to children in elementary school whose families lack the ability to buy supplies themselves. This helps them to at least help them to start school with confidence and belief.

Why School Backpacks?

Most children who we come across are in desperate need for support. Many families just cannot afford to buy school supplies such as backback4uniforms, bags, shoes and more. Without these basic materials, children are unable to start school.

School backpacks removes entry barriers and enables children to start school.

For some, it can be as simple as giving them the basic equipment and materials needed to start school. While these children still may need backback5sponsorship later on, giving a school entry backpack is the perfect solution for helping children with immediate short term costs.

– 4 school uniforms (regular, batik, sport, scouts)

Additional items as needed by each child

*Note: This program is aimed at grade 1-5. For children grades 6-12, costs rise, hence the need for monthly sponsorship.
