Giving a School Entry Backpack helps children access school through providing the basics their families can not afford. $100 USD is all it takes to give a child a fully equipped backpack.
School Entry Backpacks
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 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 backpack, four uniforms, bags, shoes and more.
School backpacks remove entry barriers and enable 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 sponsorship later on, giving a school entry backpack is the perfect solution for helping children with immediate short term costs.
School backpacks include:
– 2 school uniforms (regular, scouts)
– 2 pairs of black school shoes
– A school backpack
– School supplies (books, pens, pencils and pencil case)
*Note: This program is aimed at grade 1-5. For children grades 6-12, costs rise, hence the need for monthly sponsorship.
