Tuesday 15 May 2012: Mary's meals and the backpack project
The girls came home from school a few weeks ago with the following note..
"The backpack project is a simple way to help children from very poor families to get to school in places like Liberia and Malawi. Very often these families cannot afford to buy basic things like pencils and notebooks, or even suitable clothes to wear to school, and so children miss out on an education. Along with the free school meal that Mary's Meals provides, the backpacks we send help children to get an education that will help them escape poverty in later life."
So we have been gathering the items on the list, and tomorrow they will hand them in to school.
