Starting today, five schools in Florida and several businesses will be collecting used school supplies from students as they clean out their lockers and prepare for their summer vacations. While it may not seem logical to send a half-used notebook to Africa, the success of this program through other organizations, and the lack of materials in some rural African schools, actually make the program rather ingenious. American half-used supplies being sent to Equatorial Guinea for underprivileged students to use, all at a total cost far below an African teacher's monetary burden of buying overpriced supplies in-country.
If you have supplies you would like to donate (no matter where you are in the world!), you can email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or (if you happen to be in South Florida), we can organize a donation pick up free of charge. Supplies will then be repackaged and sent on a mid-July shipment to Equatorial Guinea.
So far we've accepted supplies from individuals in two states and in five cities; can YOU help US make a difference?
