Back to school season is fast approaching and as Know your worth Teens we saw it fitting to do a supply drive for stationery, school clothing and other school accessories that will assist our learners who will be at a disadvantage to other learners.
Covid-19 has left many of the families in our community at a destructive disadvantage as many breadwinners are left jobless during this season.
COVID-19 job and income loss is leading to more hunger and financial hardship for more families. Many can’t even afford monthly groceries let alone school supplies.
The aim of the Back-2-School Drive is to provide relief to parents who unable to support their children with even basics for the new school year.
We are asking those of you who can afford to buy extra items to assist even just one child; private companies and individuals who can assist in donating a few items.
Thank you in advance
