School In A Bag posted an update on 12th October 2021


Thank you so much for the incredible support over the last few days since we launched this appeal, and especially the last 24 hours since Luke Simon, our Founder & CEO, featured on both BBC Radio Somerset and BBC Points West!

Every penny we raise will really help give these children the tools they need for school, and will help the families out tremendously financially, too.

We will continue to update you on our progression as we move forwards with this project.

Thank you again,

Team School in a Bag

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. 

You can see more of School in a Bags work throughout the world below and if you would like more information then please visit our School in a Bag website.

Thank you for your support.

Children need the best support in life and the poor afghans have suffered so much and these children have also had to leave their homes and security.
