Help support 1,000 students in Liberia start the school year with the supplies every child needs
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 2017, thanks to communities all over the United States, 375 students from four counties 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.
This year, we’re setting our sights even higher. By raising $8,500 we will be able to provide a book bag and school supplies for 1,000 students across Liberia’s seven counties.
Will you join us?
To support one student with a book bag and school supplies costs only $8.26.
