You Can Save an Academic Year of a Child.
A Project For Distribution of Bags and Uniforms to Children in Schools reopening post the COVID-19 Lockdown A parent from a low-income background before sending their kids to school often has to worry about various costs that must be met. It is with great difficulty that they manage to fund their child's tuition fees but that is not where the costs of sending a child to school end. The cost of books, bags, shoes, and uniforms although seem like small expenses yet add up to be a great amount for a low-income parent. These invisible expenses attached to sending a child to school have such a great impact that it has been observed that the capacity of a parent to provide for these extra costs becomes a deciding factor for the attendance of a child in school for the coming academic year.
Why is the success of this project important
The success of this project is more important in the year 2020 than any other previous year because it could mean helping the student drop out rates to not rise drastically. It is expected that hard-hit low-income parents will consider withdrawing their children from school. The success of this project could mean saving an academic year of a child. Through this project, we believe we can at least help parents feel that these extra costs have been taken care of.
