      School Kits


School kits give children in impoverished schools, refugee camps,

or other difficult settings some of the basic tools for learning.


To assemble a school kit you will need:


              One pair of blunt metal scissors (rounded tip)

              Three 70-count spiral notebooks or notebooks totaling 200-210 pages (No loose-leaf or fiiller paper)

              One 30 centimeter ruler (12”)

              One hand-held pencil sharpener

              One large eraser

              Six new pencils with erasers

              One box of 24 crayons (only 24)

              One 12” x 14” x 17” finished size cotton or lightweight canvas bag with cloth handles. 

(Please, no reusable shopping bags or backpacks.)


Pack all items inside the cloth bag.  A requested donation of $2 per kit will ship the kit from CWS warehouses around the world!
