Operation School Supplies will provide 120-impoverished children with a backpack filled with all of the supplies these children need for the school year. The gift of school supplies-rulers, notebooks, pencils, pens, and even art supplies-means that a child will have the necessary tools for class. Some of these children live in homes made of scrap lumber and cardboard. The key to escaping poverty is education and YOU make that possible, for as little as $35 per child!
The city's population has quadrupled, and many families live in extreme poverty. The average worker we help earns $8.20 (USD) per 10-hour day. School supplies are a major expense. Many of these families live in extreme purvey. Parents must choose between their children's education and food. We don't want a single child to drop out of school, so they can work to help support the family. We need your help.
Paper Houses Across the Border provides all of the school supplies needed for the school year to each of the 120-children we identified as being in extreme need. Each child receives exactly what is required for their grade-level in order to continue their education.
This project will make continuing education possible and allow 120-children escape from poverty and provide for their families. Education is the key to escaping poverty and these children and families are already working hard to make Mexico a better place. We want them to succeed.
