Back to school shopping is big business in the US. Each year school supplies seem to show up on store shelves in July – while camps are still in session, kids are still splashing and having fun at the pool or on the beach. The list of supplies seems to get longer each year!
This is not the case in developing countries. School supplies are a luxury few can afford.
In third world countries education is key to overcoming poverty and protecting children from becoming a victim of trafficking. At Veda School it is also an opportunity to teach a child about the love of God.
Each year at the beginning of school, we provide school supplies for the students who are attending Veda School. Most of these children come from extremely poor homes and for many it is the first time in their lives that they have owned a new pair of shoes and clothes that are not “hand-me-downs.”
Do you want to
This is an excellent way for you to get involved!
A one-time contribution of $35 provides: two uniforms, gym clothes, shoes, books, pens – everything a student needs to be ready for the new school year.
Is there someone in your life who is hard to buy for but loves children? Or perhaps you would like to honor someone you know, or give a special gift to an educator. You can do so by giving the gift in their name. Just let us know and we will send your honoree a personalized card describing the gift you have given in their name.
