School Kit Drive 2011

School Kit Drive 2011

Background:

Youth For Seva volunteers had visited few financially limited schools, where the students lack the infrastructure to study. As per the survey conducted, most of the students can’t afford the basic things needed for their education. Their educational performance was also poor.

To solve the dual problems of (1) Financial constraints of parents and (2) Lack of motivation towards education, YFS volunteers designed the School Kit Drive. It is entirely volunteer driven i.e. fund raising, packing, distribution and follow up.

School Kit Contents:

YFS members, in consultation with the school staff, have decided on the basic items that will be part of the kit. Following are the items that will be in the ‘School Kit’:

- 1 School Bag.

- 5 long Books.

- 2 Pens.

- 1 Geometry box.

- 20 Labels

- 1 Steel Plate

We believe that the kit would be a good motivational factor for the children to get a better education.

Each School Kit Costs Rs 300/-
