Congratulations to School in a Bag who have distributed their 100,000th schoolbag. They were the beneficiary of the recently returned round the world Unicyclist, Curry Rivel's own Ed Pratt.
According to UNICEF figures, 20% of the world's child population will never attend school.
School in a Bag is a simple solution created to help poor, orphan, vulnerable and disaster affected children throughout the world. Each SchoolBag is filled with stationery, learning resources and eating utensils that will enable a child to write, draw, colour, calculate, express themselves and above all learn.
An education for these children could be their passport to a life out of hardship and poverty.
Founder & CEO, Luke Simon, is available for interview. To arrange this, or for any questions, please contact him on 07814 787203.
