Every year, Gbowee Peace Foundation Africa's Book Bag Drive collects book bags full of school supplies and distributes them to hundreds of children in Liberia.
In 2018, thanks to communities all over the United States, 1,000 students across Liberia were awarded with book bags containing school materials and a stipend to support the purchase of uniforms. The selected students displayed academic excellence (with average grades of 90% and above) and were drawn from grades one to six.
With your support, in 2019 we are expanding the Book Bag Drive to Ghana and reaching even more students! By raising $33,912 we will be able to provide a book bag, school supplies and a $20 uniform stipend for 1,200 students across Liberia and Ghana.
Will you join us?
To support one student with a book bag, school supplies, and new school uniform costs only $28.26. Every child deserves to start the school year with the tools needed to learn and express themselves. Help make that a reality today!
