Support us in bridging the gap between students and their education through the Back2School Outreach project. PeopleGiving is proud to organize “Back2School Outreach” project whereby donations will be used to reach out to underprivileged children with school supplies.
One of the first steps in overcoming poverty is receiving an education. Poverty decreases as more people have access to education. According to Children International, “education is one of the most powerful ways to reduce poverty and improve health, gender equality, peace and stability.” When children are equipped better knowledge, we can also reduce child marriage.
The Back2School Outreach programme is to provide underprivileged children with school supplies for her/his new school year. This programme aims to provide the children with schooling essentials such as uniform, school bag, shoes and stationaries.
Our recipients are children from orphanage and poor rural family under Daily Bread Food Bank scheme. Daily Bread Food Bank (DBFB) supports over 200 hard core poor families from rural areas. These families are provided with groceries every month with the help of DBFB. The monthly earnings of a hardcore poor family is RM 1,000.00 and below with more than 3 children. The beneficiaries are from Klang Valley, other states and rural areas like Orang Asli Kampung.
SPONSOR A SCHOOL PACK
Change a life of an underprivileged child by sponsoring a Back2School pack. You can help by sponsoring a Back2School pack, which contains school essentials such as:
-basic stationery set
For each RM 100 donated, it be used to purchase a school pack per child. With this small cost, you are making a huge change to their life and their future. Our goal is to raise funds to equip the children with basic essentials to go to school.
HOW YOUR MONEY IS USED
At retail, school uniforms can range from RM 100 (Primary School) to RM 200 (High School). For those living under the national poverty line, they do not have any excess funds for these basic schooling essentials.
Hence, we focus on giving the underprivileged children with the basic essentials for school to enable them to start/continue schooling especially the school uniform and shoe, which is compulsory for each student to dress up with to attend classes at school, and basic stationery. Help us to provide the schooling opportunity to hundreds of underprivileged children and inspire them to be who they want to be when they grow up.
