7Why school supplies? To the children who receive School Kits, these supplies mean the difference between getting an education or not. Public school is usually free, but in the places where LWR works, even a few required supplies, like pens and paper, may be more than many families can afford.
And when parents can only afford to send one of their children to school, girls rarely get priority…yet the education level of mothers has the biggest impact on development.
For the months of August and September we will be accepting the various contents to make up School Kits. We will also accept fully completed kits.Please put your donations in the wooden cabinet in the lobby near the elevator.
