Backpacks for Orphans

THE STORY:

Attending school is one of the biggest challenges for orphaned children, especially in rural areas. Many of these children are giving up opportunities to financially support their family by attending school.  Resources are extremely limited and school too often becomes an unaffordable luxury. Many of the children in 25:40’s aftercare program walk over an hour to attend school and carry their books by hand or in an old plastic bag. Very few have a functional backpack.  For these children having a backpack is an essential item to not only carry their books and supplies, but to make the journey of even getting to school an easier one.  An education is one of the most vital opportunities that will enable orphaned children to rise out of poverty. A new school year begins in mid-January, help give orphaned children the tools necessary to succeed in school by donating a backpack today.

**The goal for the campaign is to provide 65 children with backpacks, each backpack costs $17.**

25:40 is a nonprofit organization founded in 2003, dedicated to helping communities empower orphaned and vulnerable children in the often overlooked rural areas of southern Africa.  25:40’s collaborative program model provides a framework of entrusting communities to save their children and was designed to be easily replicated in other rural areas of southern Africa. 25:40 does not simply provide financial resources, but provides hard and soft skills to encourage the community to develop and invest in their own resources to become economically self-sufficient. The 25:40 Aftercare Program was set up to meet the needs of orphans and vulnerable children in the Canzibe community in the rural Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. 25:40’s programming offers orphaned and vulnerable children a fighting chance for a future free from poverty, disease and violence.
