School Kits Project Breakdown
We want to help and we can use YOUR help!
School Bits was created to help kids with low or no resources to have a better school experience. We will constantly launch projects to aid as many kids as we can in Primary schools in Atlantis. The current project goal is to provide 50 kids with a school kit containing a back pack and a school uniform (shoes, pants, two shirts, two pairs of socks and a sweater).
We will gather a list of candidates by approaching the schools principals and teachers and ask them to help us identify kids that can be benefited from this project since school teachers see the real conditions in which the kids come to school every day.
Each raising funds campaign will run for two to three months and we will do our best to reach the target. If the target is not reached in this period we will randomly select the kids that will receive the school kits that we can obtain according to the funds raised during this period of time. If we raise funds above the target we will use the remainder funds to further supply the same kids with as many academic kits as possible. Each academic kit will consist of 2 notebooks, 2 pencils, 2 erasers, 1 color pencils pack, 1 Pritt, 1 ruler, 1 cello tape and 3 plastic rolls and it will be given in a random selection.
School Bits is formed by concerned parents that had witnessed the impact on kids that live in areas with scarce financial resources such as Atlantis and we just want to find a way to help our community’s youth to at least have the very basic needs to attend school. In many cases kids cannot attend school without a uniform since the uniform is required by most schools and in most cases kids go to school with under and oversized or raged clothes and shoes and this make kids feel different and insecure and run the risk of being bullied or at least stereotyped thus distracting their minds from focusing on class losing the opportunity to realize their true potential and resulting in low grades, furthermore such situations diminish the children's ability to develop a healthy self esteem and creates insecurities rendering our youth as easy targets for gangster activities, drugs and alcohol abuse.
We have a logo & website donation that will be up and running before December courtesy of Pro Web Design.
We will deliver different types of gratification packages, from hand written gratification letters to photographic and video material of the delivery ceremony of the kits as a reward to our contributors.
We believe we can make a difference if we focus on our kid’s education because the future rest on their shoulders. We can all help bit by bit.
Educated Kids = Better future
We want to help and we can use YOUR help!
Kids are the key for tomorrow so why not help them today? I believe that if we want to see a different country or different world we have to take action. Yes we're all busy with our personal and family lives but if we can't do it physically the least we can do is support those who are trying, there is really no excuse not to do it just unwillingness to help.
School Bits thanks the help and support of all our partners, sponsors, collaborators and supporters.
