Kids at the Jakarta landfill with school supplies
June was a very busy month at XSProject. It was the end of the school year for the children from the Jakarta landfills, but we are already preparing for the 2013/2014 school year that begins this month (July).
Thanks to the donations from our generous supporters, XSProject will be able to send 48 kids from the Jakarta landfill back to school next month, for the entire year, with everything they need to excel in their studies.
Forty-one children are returning students and 7 are brand new students. Eight of the kids are entering Middle School and we are excited to be able to share their progress with you in the coming months.
In addition to backpacks filled with school supplies, our generous supporters and donors have also allowed XSProject to be able to pay for books, meals, exam fees, shoes and to cover additional expenses such as medical attention and field trips.
We at XSProject are so grateful and thankful for the outpouring of support we have received this year. It allows us to reach out with new programs to the Jakarta trash picker community. Thank you very much.
