EYES & EARS
Our partners become our eyes and ears on the ground, and we trust them to respond how we would when faced with volatile climates and difficult situations. It’s great to be able to communicate with someone on the ground, track the progress of the SchoolBags, and troubleshoot any problems that come up.
We understand that the ability to communicate in the local language of a country is so important for negotiating purposes. Borders are sometimes tricky and avoiding miscommunication means safe transportation of the SchoolBags, and allows for a smooth journey.
Cultures are complex, sensitive, and should be respected at all costs. Our partners have years of experience and understand the local customs of their home. Their culture receives the respect that it needs and the SchoolBag distributions can feel more genuine and familiar for the children and teachers.
We wouldn’t be where we are today without the constant support from charities all over the world. It’s a two way relationship – our partners receive the SchoolBags and create lasting change for their home country, and we get to do what we love – provide educational resources to children who need them.
