June 2014 – Supplies 4 Success Program Hands Out 16K+ Educational Packages in 2014
SchoolBOX is overjoyed to share that we have completed our Supplies 4 Success program for 2014 and have distributed over 16,000 educational supply packages. This year, SchoolBOX has provided more educational packages to primary students and teachers in Nicaragua than ever before. 16,078 educational packages were provided to students and teachers in 84 communities.
We are thrilled that 15,359 students now have the supplies they need to complete the school year and that 719 teachers have tools to educate these young minds. Our entire team was inspired through the sheer joy expressed by the students, and their gratitude for these simple items. On behalf of these students, teachers and families, SchoolBOX would like to say ‘Muchas Gracias’ to all supporters and monthly donors that helped ‘Make Education Possible’ for over 16,000 students and teachers this year.
It only takes $5 to empower a student with a package of school supplies. Each educational package includes notebooks, pencils, an eraser, a sharpener and a ruler. For more information on Supplies 4 Success, visit www.schoolbox.ca/supplies. For pictures of this program, go to http://goo.gl/GKGiA2.
