School in a a nutshell
According to UNICEF figures, 20% of the world’s child population will never attend school.

School in a Bag is a simple solution created to help poor, orphan, vulnerable and disaster affected children throughout the world. Each SchoolBag is filled with stationery, learning resources and eating utensils that will enable a child to write, draw, colour, calculate, express themselves and above all learn.

An education for these children could be their passport to a life out of hardship and poverty.
