School in a Bag

School in a Bag is a UK-based educational charity, sending SchoolBags filled with stationery and eating utensils to disadvantaged children around the world. A SchoolBag costs £20 to fund (including all the contents and shipping), plus they are individually numbered so the donor gets to find out exactly where in the world their bag has gone – more often than not, donors are able to learn details and see an image of the beneficiary of their SchoolBag.

A SchoolBag is a simple solution, each filled with essential resources that will enable a child to write, draw, colour, calculate, express themselves, eat, drink and above all, learn. A typical SchoolBag contains: pencils, biros, colouring pencils, a maths set, ruler, pencil case, 6 exercise books, a water bottle, a LunchBox with Spork and a hygiene kit which includes a flannel, soap, toothbrush and toothpaste.

To date nearly 150,000 SchoolBags have been distributed to children in 55 countries. Every SchoolBag is new, individually numbered and trackable via the School in a Bag website.
