Back to School - Equal Start
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. Many do not have the ﬁnancial means to purchase the appropriate school supplies.
The objective of our Back to School - Equal Start Program is to provide children from low-income households 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. It is through the collective efforts of the community that we are able to help create equal opportunities and foster a brighter future for all children, regardless of their circumstances. Therefore, once again this year, we will provide 250 underprivileged children with supplies including school bags, lunch boxes, pencils, crayons, erasers, binders, notebooks, and resources to develop their empowerment and leadership skills.
