This project buys each child one leather backpack to enable them keep their books and other scholastic materials safe from rain, these bags will also act as Christmas gifts to the kids during annual Christmas day celebrations in the communities, this is the opportunity to give a Christmas gift to a school child in rural Uganda
Rural school kids normally do not keep their books for long, "when rains find you on the way, you have no way of protecting your books, we keep them under the shirt but the rain will still penetrate through"-Albert a Grade four pupil narrates
The bags will be of high quality, they will be able to keep their books for a whole school year for the first time,every child will receive one backpack to enable them continue going to school.
We will ensure that 40 children receive a well-rounded and strong education so they can grow up to be knowledgeable and prepared contributors to their communities and our world. Mountains of Hope also knows that no child can be successful on their own. That's why we support the whole community by distributing water filters, healthy food, and other services so that they can support the child all throughout their education. Through the holistic approach, we will create lasting change.
