Backpacks for Africa
Backpacks for Africa is Project Lucas' premiere project. It all started when our founder met a little girl named Mary who could not go to school because she lacked a simple notebook. She lacked a notebook, therefore she could not attend school for an entire term.
The purpose of Backpacks for Africa is for individuals in America to make a difference in the life of a child in Kenya. A SIMPLE backpack full of school supplies can change the entire world of a child.
The average Kenyan family makes less than two dollar a day, leaving most children unable to afford school supplies and, therefore, not able to attend school. Project Lucas asks individuals, churches and groups to sponsor a backpack that will be filled with enough school supplies for each child to attend school for two years. Each student and thier family will hear the gospel because of your sponsorship during a backpack cermony.
You and/or your group can assist Project Lucas to ensure Kenyan children receive an education and hope for a better future through the gospel of Jesus Christ. The day we hand out these backpacks is amazing click here to see videos, pics and a lot more.
