Education

Philippines: Book Bags

Achieving basic primary education remains one of the greatest challenges in the Philippines. Only 67 percent of the children who enter first grade will complete basic elementary education. Many stop attending school because school supplies or transportation is too expensive. By helping to provide basic school supplies and other necessary items for school you help to ensure that a child is provided with what he or she needs to receive an education.

The Philippines Book Bag project provides a book bag filled with much needed school supplies.

New York: Book Bags

It's amazing how powerful a new book bag filled with school supplies can be for a child. That's beacuse in the dead-end environment where Metro kids live, it's easier to drop out than move up. Providing much needed school supplies gives children the chance to build the educational foundation they need to find a better future for their lives.

The Back to School Outreach gives children a brand new, sturdy book bag filled with necessary school supplies.
