May 2014 – Supplies 4 Success Program Update!
As of May 21, 2014 SchoolBOX has delivered over 80% of the Supplies 4 Success packages planned for this year. 12,521 educational supply packages have been distributed to primary school students and teachers in 10 regions around Nicaragua. These supplies help children stay in school in areas where families have just enough money to cover their basic human needs. All of the children were overjoyed and thankful for their new supplies. SchoolBOX is thrilled that the students and teachers have notebooks, pencils, erasers, sharpeners and rulers to use in the classroom.
A huge thank you goes to all the supporters and monthly donors that help provide over 15,000 educational packages to students and teachers annually in Nicaragua. It only takes $5 to help a child receive school supplies. For more information on Supplies 4 Success, visit www.schoolbox.ca/supplies. For pictures of this program, go to http://goo.gl/GKGiA2.
