The project will help solve the severe lack of resources that can prevent children from going to school and getting an education. The children and their families are very poor and simply cannot afford or get access to the contents that go into our SchoolBags.


The SchoolBags will enable children to have a selection of contents: pencils, pens, crayons, a math set, a pencil case, a ruler, 3 exercise books (plain, lined and square), a water bottle and a math set. This will enhance their capacity to learn and enable them to be fed at school.
