CHURCH WORLD SERVICE "BACK TO SCHOOL KITS"
School kits give children in impoverished schools, refugee camps, or other difficult settings some of the basic tools for learning.
Here’s what you’ll need to create your own kit:
- One pair of blunt scissors removed from the package (rounded tip, only)
- Three 70-count bound notebooks or notebooks totaling 200-210 pages (no loose-leaf or filler paper)
- One 30-centimeter / 12” ruler
- One hand-held pencil sharpener removed from the package
- One large eraser (no pencil cap erasers)
- Six new, unsharpened pencils with erasers (please remove pencils from the package)
- One box of 24 crayons (only 24)
- One 12”x14” to 14”x17” finished size cotton or lightweight canvas bag with handles (solid color or kid-friendly fabric, no logos, reusable shopping bags or backpacks)
Please place items in a large Ziploc type bag to keep them together
