Every year, the Gondwana Care Trust runs their Back-to-school Christmas Bag Project. This project has three (3) goals. 1. Reward children who have performed well throughout the school year. 2. Encourage the children to return to school for the next academic year, equipped with stationary and a bag. And 3. To offer the children a small Christmas gift in the form of a sweet treat, small toy, book or toiletries (depending on the child's age). This project reaches children and schools all across Namibia, even in the most rural communities.
This wonderful project has in 2021 reached over 2500 children with a gift, stationary kit and reusable bag for school. This is thanks to the wonderful support from Global United, PSG and Frans Indongo Group, and many more.
Preparation for this project is always ongoing. If you’d like to get involved, the team is always looking for support.
We invite you to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to find out what are the items needed to add to the School Bags to make a child’s Christmas as special as possible.
