250 million children across the world lack basic reading, writing and math skills. If these students are lucky enough to attend school, they often don’t have the resources to purchase the necessary school supplies. Our non-profit partners built over 300 schools and education programs in the US and across third world countries last year. We’re happy to support these efforts and provide the much-needed school supplies for these students.
The Education Access Project is a WeHero DIY Volunteer Event delivering kits that have the necessary school supplies to children of different regions throughout the globe. All the supplies for these kits arrive at your companies doorstep ready for your team to put them together. The kits are designed to be fun and to inspire the kids to want to go to school and stay in school. You’ll be adding your own touch and message to each kit you create, drawing fun pictures on the bags, leaving letters of encouragement, and giving them a snapshot with a Polaroid so they can see the volunteer behind the gift of school supplies and education.
