Global Backpack Project

Global Backpack Project's mission is to encourage a desire for learning by helping children feel prepared for school. With the help of local communities and partner organizations, we seek to make a difference in the lives of children, just as they seek to make a difference for themselves and their communities.
Help educate 650 vulnerable children in Uganda
Your support will help improve access to education for orphaned and vulnerable children in the Kayunga District in Uganda. Government sponsored education is free, but school uniforms and supplies are required. Global Backpack Project aims to deliver backpacks, school supplies, uniforms and shoes to 650 orphaned and vulnerable children attending or hoping to attend the Bwetyaaba Primary School. Research has shown that education is the single most effective way to escape the cycle of poverty. project reportread updates from the field
Help At-Risk and Homeless Children in Portland
By providing new backpacks and school supplies to at-risk and homeless children in the Portland area, we aim to boost self-esteem and improve school success in our most vulnerable population. More than 20,000 girls and boys in Oregon's K-12 system are homeless, and this number is growing at an alarming rate. Let's change the course of our future together by giving children the tools they need to succeed in school and life. project reportread updates from the field
