When children become six years old they should here their first school bell calling them to visit the lesson and sit down at the desk. But there are several reasons according to which some parents postpone this event till next year.
First of all, in some localities there are no school – it was damaged or closed through the military conflict. There may be no transport connection or family may have no money to pay for traveling to the nearest location where the school may be.
Secondly, there needed specific sum to be able to purchases stationary, backpack and clothes for the first-former.
The main reason in the both cases – absence of money, unemployment, incompatibility of cost and family income, in the end – poverty.
Last year, the “Responsible citizens” provided support to children with stationary kits on the NGCA. Today, working on GCA we are receiving alike applications for obtaining such kind of kits. That is why we require your support.
We have developed the list of necessary things for “standard kits” development according to the different age groups:
1-4 form - 324 UAH
5-8 form - 334 UAH
9-11 form - 362 UAH
There are also backpacks are needed for school. We didn’t include it in the kits but they are really important. The cost of one is about 400 of UAH. If you have a backpack you don’t use but it can suit to a child for school, it means you are able to help family in a tough life situation!
It should seem that the amount of on kit is not that big. But for some families this amount could have become a huge support, and for children – good present for their, in some cases first, school year!
If you can buy necessary items or can support us in this campaign financially, we would be heartily grateful to you!
We would be also glad about any support provided, for example, about any item from the kit – maybe you have albums for drawing or copybooks.
