Provide Backpacks for 45 Kids in DR Congo

Backpacks coming soon thanks to your donations!
Backpacks coming soon thanks to your donations!

Since this project was launched, it has become further apparent to me how badly backpacks are needed at the Vijana Primary School in Luberizi, eastern DR Congo. The rainy season is upon the community, and notebooks become damaged. Backpacks will provide much needed protection for all the students' supplies, including pencil and pen, notebook, and math kit. In this environment, backpacks are not an optional accessory but a necessity. Thank you to each and every one of you who donated to this important cause. The children and the community don't have any other source of support and are truly grateful. Don't forget to visit our main project here on GlobalGiving, "Educate 130 Children of Rape Victims in DR Congo (#8568)." I hope to have another microproject posted in the next week offering a chance to provide shoes for the students at Rwenena Primary School (earlier, we provided shoes for the Luberizi school). Thanks again!

Microproject Disclaimer

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Educate 130 Children of Rape Victims in DR Congo. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.

If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
