School Fees for AIDS Orphans

Book Bags for Children

While children in Mombasa, Kenya, continue studying thank to donors like you, they also receive book bags complete with pencils, pens, erasers, sharpener, ruler, notebooks, file folders, scissors, and glue. 

Yes, there is a an 84 year old lady who makes the cutes book bags for the kids and she donates them to AFCA.  Then we have people who take advantage of the great school supply sales that happen in July and they go buy Walmart and Target out of the things I mentioned above.  Everything is brought to our warehouse where other volunteers complete the bags and pack them up for shipment to any of our programs where orphaned children are finding it hard to afford their school supplies at the beginning of the school year.

The kids get so excited to receive this simple gift, but they know that without it, they would not be admitted to school.  Also, without uniforms or school shoes, they cannot get in.  Therefore, not only do you help pay school fees, you also help cover the costs of these uniforms and shoes.  What a gift!
