Following the inception of School in a Bag in Swaziland, Southern Africa, the first few consignments of SchoolBags were shipped out from the UK. This method is used today and we have established excellent working relationships with trusted, reliable freight companies. Alongside the UK Packed SchoolBags, we also procure bags and contents at source, In Country enabling us to reach more children in remote locations of the world.
We work with incredible partners who work tirelessly to improve the education of children in their communities, often with minuscule budgets. By providing SchoolBags, we can take their financial and supply burden away from their remit allowing them to put their funds towards the other vital parts of the educations structure. More often than not this includes funding more teachers or building new class rooms. This dual relationship is critical to the execution of our work and we are indebted to all of our amazing partners who collectively help us transform the lives of children through education.
