Let's do this...

Calling on you to help us reach our goal, reach out to a friend,

A simple backpack with books and school supplies can be a lifetime to a child in a developing country. Studies show that an education is the best way for a poor child to escape poverty later in life.

Donate a Backpack is our signature annual end-of-year, give-back Program, designed to support our CHANCE Afrika's Education Program. All backpacks and school supplies are bought in Kenya to help save on the high shipping & administative fees.

All 100% of the tax deductible proceeds go towards this program.

1 Backpack = $30 only
