Life for Relief and Development (LIFE) is providing students in over 30 countries with backpacks filled with essentials for back-to-school
SOUTHFIELD, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the schoolyear off to a start around the world, countless children are in need of the basic essentials to acquire their education, adding stress to many families. For several years now, Life for Relief and Development (LIFE) has been supplying backpacks filled with school materials to students in over twenty countries through our Back-to-School program. This schoolyear, LIFE was able to provide educational aid to children in twenty-eight countries.
“Education is a basic human right, and as anyone knows, school can be generally stressful for students; LIFE is pleased to relieve some of that worry for students and their families, and hopes that it can put a smile on their faces everyday they want in the door to school,” said Dr. Hany Saqr, CEO of LIFE.
Education is needed to elevate a population out of poverty and into society. Attaining basic knowledge and literacy is a fundamental step in gainful employment or entrepreneurship. As such, the capability to be financially independent gives vulnerable populations opportunities to be constructive individuals and contribute to the betterment of their communities.
Seeing the joy on the faces of students during the distribution of backpacks worldwide was just heartwarming. Backpacks contained items such as: notebooks, dictionaries, collage paper, scissors, eraser, glue, sharpener, felt-tip pens, crayons, wax crayons, full pencil case, compass, geometry set, water crayons, pencils, and pens. LIFE hopes that students around the world are having a great start to their schoolyear!
