For most children, preparing to return to school is an exciting time. They get new school bags, books, school supplies, and even new clothing! Unfortunately, this experience is not shared for many children coming from underprivileged backgrounds. Most do not have the ﬁnancial means to purchase the appropriate school supplies. If they’re lucky, they have relatives or friends that are able to pass down supplies and clothing.
With current global events further straining the financial situation of those coming from underprivileged backgrounds, we at Children Now have never felt more compelled to pursue our novel Back to School Program to help alleviate some of that pressure. The objective of our Back to School - Equal Start Program is to provide underprivileged children with a full set of school supplies and resources so that they are able to get the most out of what school has to offer, and ultimately increase their chances to persevere and succeed in school. Therefore, this year, for the 3rd edition of this program, we will provide 250 underprivileged children with supplies including school bags, lunch boxes, pencils, crayons, erasers, binders, notebooks, and the resources to develop their empowerment and leadership skills.
