Help us provide 3,000 SchoolBags to Afghan Refugee children to start school in the UK
Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, the Afghanistan & Central Asian Association (ACAA) has become the first point of contact for Afghan refugees coming into the United Kingdom.
Arriving on our soil with only what they can carry, they have faced immense trauma and horrific experiences.
Now that they are safe, the main priorities in the short term are supporting their resettlement and integration into UK life, learning English through ESOL classes and enrolling children into local schools.
To help these children quickly and easily start school again we want to work with ACAA and provide 3,000 SchoolBags full of stationery, equipment and resources so that they can engage with their education again.
A typical SchoolBag (pictured below) contains: 12 pencils, 10 biro pens, 12 colouring pencils, a maths set, ruler, pencil case, 6 exercise books (line/square/plain), a water bottle, a LunchBox with a Spork and a hygiene pack comprising toothbrush, toothpaste, flannel, soap and washable facemask.
To deliver a SchoolBag to an Afghan Refugee child costs £20. Please help us to give as many children the gift of education by donating to our appeal.
